SANDUSKY, Ohio — Her husband asleep beside her, and her infant in a bedroom nearby, a Parkland Boulevard woman was jolted awake Monday morning by a noise and a strange odor.

The alleged culprit: Jeffrey Knox, 37, of Collins, who was charged with burglary.

Vermilion police arrested Knox shortly after the husband and wife chased him out of their home at about 2:15 a.m.

The homeowners told police they were asleep in their bedroom, their 10-month-old child sleeping in an adjacent room, when the wife woke up after hearing something and smelling “a strange odor” police said.

The alleged burglar told police he’d been drinking at a Super Bowl party earlier in the night and he mistook the victims’ home for his friend’s home.
