A Modesto woman awoke early Monday to the sounds of strangers in her home and went to her kitchen to find a woman and half-naked man rummaging through her belongings.
The two had kicked in the front door of the woman’s home in the 800 block of Aeron Street and were in the process of moving property toward the front of the home when she found them, according to Stanislaus County sheriff’s Sgt. Jon McQueary.
The woman, whose 4- and 8-year-old children were also in the home, called police. Deputies arrived and found the two people still inside, McQueary said.
They convinced the man to put his clothes back on before taking him and the woman into custody. Russell Peavy, 43, of Hughson and Elisia Muzquiz, 44, of Modesto were arrested on suspicion of home invasion robbery.
