When she awoke and sent her sons to investigate, they discovered a man standing in the middle of the stairway, cops said. Upon asking the marauder what he was doing, he replied “I don’t know,” and walked back down and left through the front door. Cops say one of the woman’s sons identified the man as someone he was hanging out with earlier in the day. According to the report, the front door was kicked in and badly damaged, and some drawers were open, but nothing was taken.
