Police in Fredericksburg say a woman who went out to buy a newspaper returned home to find that an intruder in her home, and on her toilet.
Police say the man apparently cut a screen and unlocked a door while the woman, who is in her 80s, was out. She had noticed the man outside when she was leaving.
When she returned, she also noticed that the bathroom door was closed. Opening the door, she was surprised to see the stranger perched on the toilet.
Police say she asked him several question, including "How long are you going to be?"
He answered in Spanish and she told him she was going to call police. He left quickly, and police are investigating.
The man is described as a Hispanic male in his late 20s. He was wearing a sleeveless black shirt, dark pants and had a tattoo on one of his upper arms.
