Just prior to bunking down with the unsuspecting female, the 35-year-old man had kicked a couple of doors in the apartment building in an apparent search to find himself a place to lay his head.

The man managed finally to kick his way into the woman's apartment and crashed out naked on her bed.

"It was a wooden door, containing hay. It was fairly easy to kick it in," said Anders Wennergren at Vänersborg police to local media.

The commotion had however awoken the woman from her slumbers and faced with the shock of being woken at 5.30am and having an uninvited bedroom companion, she fled to the balcony.

When the police arrived at the apartment the man was found sound asleep on the woman's bed, still in his birthday suit.

The police detained the man and once he has sobered up he will be given the opportunity to explain his nude nighttime escapades.

The man is suspected of two counts of criminal damage and one of trespassing.

What a confusing article one half disagrees with the other, very poorly written

still can't work out if she was in the bed or if she heard him busting down the doors and shot thru!

funny story all the same, although while he was taking a Nap (hope he did not steal it) he should have taken a dump as well! LOL The headline intimates he took the nap by force and the story intimates that he was asleep in the bed previously to kicking the door down.... indeed the 3 little pigs are here somewhere except the bit about huffing and puffing and blowing things is missing....maybe he did not blow hard enough and she kicked him out!

Curiously, during my short stay in Sweden I also had an incident when a naked drunken male got into my apartment at night (we were not locking the door before that incident). The poor sod was all in tears and complaining about something. I tried to calm him a bit before walking him to his apartment upstairs. My wife was initially very scared, as she woked first and discovered the guy, but she had a lot of laugh in the morning.
