ATLANTA -- A 51-year-old man was charged with criminal trespass for entering a home through an unlocked door and asking the resident for money.
Andre Thomas was taken into custody Saturday night after walking into a house in the 380 block of 6th Street in Midtown Atlanta without permission.
The victim told police he was inside the house with six of his friends when Thomas entered. Thomas told the homeowner he was from Detroit and needed money for gas.
Thomas refused to leave the house, so the victim called 911 and chased him to the intersection of Penn and Ponce de Leon avenues, where he was taken into custody.
According to a police report, Thomas told investigators he thought the victim's home was a restaurant, and he entered because he was hungry.
