Homeless man found in woman's bedroom with pants down, deputies say
Dwayne Cook, beaten by woman's husband, arrested
A homeless man who deputies say was found in a woman's bedroom with his pants down, trying to tie his shoes has been arrested after being beat up by the woman's husband.
Dwayne Cook, 45, of North Carolina, had been showing up uninvited at an Oak Hill home, according to the Volusia County Sheriff's Department.
The homeowners said they came back from shopping and found Cook in the master bedroom of the residence bent over with his pants around his ankles.
The woman told deputies she and her husband, niece and aunt went to a nearby dollar store to shop. When they returned they found the door of the master bedroom closed. Her husband then opened the bedroom door and found Cook with his pants down, the report said.
Cook slammed the bedroom door in the man's face but the man pushed it open and started punching Cook in the face forcing him to leap out of a window. Cook suffered a cut to the forehead, deputies said.
Deputies found blood drops in the bedroom and bed sheet, which the husband said was from Cook, investigating deputies said
Deputies were later called by maintenance workers who saw Cook with blood dripping down his face, enter a home at Valencia Drive. A deputy looked through a window and saw Cook pacing back and forth inside the home. The homeowner allowed the deputy to enter the home to make contact with Cook, reports said.
Cook was arrested Tuesday and charged with stalking and burglary with assault or battery, an arrest report shows.
