Trespasser breaks into Douglas residence, uses bathroom, leaves

Just a couple days after moving to Juneau, a 23-year-old woman received an unwelcome housewarming gift — a trespasser in her bathroom.

On Saturday evening, the newcomer was home alone in her residence in the 2000 block of Creek Street in Douglas and heard the sound of a person using her upstairs bathroom, according to the Juneau Police Department report. She left the room she was in to investigate the sound, and saw an unknown white woman standing on the landing of the stairs near the sliding glass door to the outside.

The intruder yelled an obscene sentence at the resident and then left through the sliding glass door, according to the report. The resident called JPD at 9:37 p.m. to report the trespassing. Juneau Deputy Chief of Police David Campbell said Tuesday that there didn’t seem to be any ulterior motive and that nothing was reported stolen from the residence.

“She heard her use the bathroom,” Campbell said, “so apparently (the intruder) left something.”
