PORT ORCHARD, Wash. -- Authorities say a 31-year-old intoxicated sailor kicked in the door to a 70-year-old woman's home and told her to pray because he was to "blow her head off."
KOMO News reported that active-duty sailor Matthew Clark was arrested early Friday after a neighbor called police because he heard yelling.
When officers arrived, they heard screaming from the residence and saw a man leave the house. Officers saw the woman's door kicked in and found her cowering in her bedroom.
Officers approached the man, who said he was doing a military exercise and had been drinking. He then started crying.
Police say the woman lives alone.
Clark was booked into Kitsap County Jail for investigation of residential burglary. He is assigned to Naval Base Kitsap. Bail was set at $50,000
