A Texas homeowner is in for a surprise after an unexpected and unwelcome guest breaks into his home and steals a bottle of wine and Gatorade from his refrigerator.
Sloane Foster, a homeowner in North Austin, was alerted to an intruder at 7:30 a.m. Friday when she heard her back door open.
“I could hear the noise, I’d have big pits and my limbs would fall off, so I always have noise, but it felt a little unusual,” Foster told Fox 7.
When he went to investigate the unusual noise, he found his refrigerator open.
“It was open and it’s where I usually have my Gatorade drinks and when I see the door open,” Foster said.
That’s when Foster realized someone was in her house.

“I started asking the person to identify themselves and started throwing all kinds of insults asking who and why,” Foster said.
In front of him was a man who was 1.9 centimeters tall without shoes, wearing a black Adidas sweatshirt and black jeans.
He said he entered her home because her back door was locked.
“It’s complete and utter shock that someone is in my home and space and how they got in here and they feel comfortable enough to walk in my yard at 7:30 in the morning, as you say, and risk my being here.” put it,” Foster said.
Foster said the man was holding a bottle of wine and Gatorade.
“He said I didn’t have anything, he claimed the Gatorade was his, even though I knew it wasn’t. I didn’t want the half-drunk Gatorade, but I really wanted the wine back,” Foster said.
He wanted her out of the house immediately.
“He asked me not to shoot him and he was lucky and I told him he had three seconds to get out of my house or I would shoot him,” Foster said.

Foster said she has lived in her home for about 12 years and has never experienced anything like this before.
Now an Austin homeowner is warning his neighbors to be vigilant and lock their doors at all times.
“Everybody needs to increase their vigilance, always lock doors, just be aware, most importantly have a voice, use it, shout, go out, give guidance.”
Since the incident, Foster has taken home security more seriously. He has a lock on his gate, signs in his front yard, and remembers to keep his doors locked at all times.
“Luckily, he didn’t hurt me, he didn’t show up, and if the next guy comes in, he’s not going to be as lucky,” Foster said.
