SAN DIEGO — San Diego County authorities say a wanted parolee has been arrested after he turned up naked in a woman’s shower.

Sheriff’s officials say a Valley Center woman came home Friday morning and heard the shower running. When she investigated, the shower door swung open and there was the naked intruder.

The woman ran away, screaming for her husband, who was in a workshop outside.

Authorities say by the time the couple returned to the bathroom, the man was gone and the woman’s watch had been stolen.

She ran outside, spotted the man — who was now dressed — and followed him until sheriff’s deputies arrested him.

Authorities say 47-year-old Jerald Harris is a convicted burglar wanted for eluding parole supervision.

They say the woman’s watch was found in his pocket.
