A naked man allegedly broke into a home in Austin Thursday, assaulted the resident, and prompted an hours-long police standoff in the middle of the day.

The naked man tried to break into the home of an employee at Michael Cargill’s Central Texas Gun Works, according to Fox 7. The employee’s wife was home at the time, around 11:53 a.m., and “had to fight him off,” Cargill told reporters.

“Luckily she had a dog. The dog actually attacked the guy as well, bit the guy. They were able to get him in a room, fight him into the room, and lock him in,” Cargill continued. When the wife was shut inside the room, she managed to call 911 but was allegedly hung up on by the first call taker.

“This is heartbreaking,” Cargill noted. “The first call taker hung up on her. She had to call 911 again, you know, to get the police there.” She called back and officers responded to the scene.

The naked suspect in the break-in was identified as Larry Robinson, according to the New York Post. (RELATED: Ignoring The Pleas Of Shocked Onlookers, Man Continues Masturbating In Starbucks)

As there were several firearms in the home, the situation was upgraded from a barricaded subject call to using flash bangs and “distractionary devices” to get Robinson out of the home, Austin police public information officer Jose Mendez told the outlet. Robinson eventually surrendered, and no injuries were reported. He faces charges of burglary and possibly more in the coming days.
