Woman Grabs Knife After Finding Strange Man Sleeping Beside Her Mastiff

It’s not unusual for people to go out and have a good time on New Year’s Eve, some people might even make plans to stay at someone else’s home for the night. But what happens when you spend a leisurely New Year’s Eve at home with just your room mate and you wake up the next morning only to find that you are no longer alone?

Lynn Sarver and her roommate know exactly how that feels. The two had stayed up on New Year’s Eve watching television and fell asleep on the couch. They aren’t sure if they locked the door or not before dozing off. The next morning they woke up to find their 120-pound Mastiff, Benton, asleep on the twin size mattress in their living room floor just feet away from them, but Benton wasn’t alone.

Sleeping in the bed underneath Benton was a man. At first Lynn thought it might be her son, but then she remembered that he was out of town. That’s when she called 911.

Lynn says that dogs like Benton are known to let people into homes, but then not let them out. The young man asleep in the bed turned out to be a 24-year-old that lived just a couple houses down. His friends had dropped him off the night before after a night out and he apparently went in the wrong house and dozed off, although he doesn’t remember.
