An allegedly drunk and possibly drugged man gave a pre-teen girl in Signal Hill the shock of her life early Sunday morning, after he made his way into her bedroom clad only in his boxer shorts, according to CBS2. The suspect gained access to the home by unlocking the door by reaching through an open window.

The intruder stumbled into the 10-year-old girl's bed, apparently wishing to go to sleep. The child's father heard noises coming from her room and yanked the man out of his daughter's bed. The girl was not hurt.

The father's reaction, according to a live report: "I see the guy only in boxers, close to my daughter and say `What the hell?"'

By the time authorities arrived on scene the intruder was up and being held by several people, notes the Daily Breeze.
