London, September 8 : In a bizarre incident, a burglar stole cash from the home of two sleeping farm workers, woke one of them by rubbing spices over his body, and hit the other with a 20cm sausage.
The incident occurred in the U.S. city of Fresno on Saturday morning.
Fresno County police officer Lieutenant Ian Burrimond has revealed that the burglar has been arrested, and the money recovered from him.
He said that the burglar was hiding in a nearby field.
The police had enough of evidence to link the man to the crime.
"It seems the guy ran out of the house wearing only a T-shirt, boxer shorts and socks, leaving behind his wallet with his ID," the Telegraph quoted Lt Burrimond as telling the Fresno Bee newspaper.
The officer also revealed that the bizarre weapons the burglar used were from the victims' kitchen.
The two men said that they discovered that their home had been ransacked and cash stolen after the attacker fled.
Lt Burrimond said the sausage used in the attack was thrown away by the suspect, and eaten by a dog.
"That's right, the dog ate the weapon. I tell you, this was one weird case," Lt Burrimond said.
