Woman drives 40 minutes to work with partially naked stranger in backseat

·2-min read

An intoxicated man made himself at home in a woman's car, only for her to realise he was partially naked and asleep in her backseat when she arrived at work.

On Sunday evening, Amanda Kean started her car outside her home in Providence, Rhode Island.

She left the car unlocked while she went inside for just a short period of time and then headed off to her job as an overnight delivery driver, Easton Police said in a statement.

During that window of time, a man, who has now been identified as Jose Osorio, 21, allegedly crept into her vehicle and fell asleep on the floor in the back.

On her way to work, Ms Kean listened to a true crime podcast, oblivious to anyone in the back. It was only when she arrived at her place of work in Massachusetts that she saw the man.

Ms Kean told Providence-based news station WJAR she heard moaning, so she paused her podcast and rolled down her window to have a look outside.

"I realised it was not coming from outside of my truck, it was coming from inside of my truck," she said, adding it took her a moment to comprehend what she was seeing.

The trip to work, which crossed state lines, is roughly 40 minutes.

Police arrest naked man

Ms Kean called 911 at around 12 am on Monday and told them she had discovered a partially naked man in her vehicle.

Police say they found Osorio in the backseat after arriving at the scene.

He was reportedly partially clothed, with a pair of shorts around one leg and a shirt wrapped around one arm. The rest of his body was completely bare.

Ms Kean told police officers she did not know Osorio and had never seen him before.

Officers noted that Osorio was "extremely intoxicated" and through an interpreter, it was later discovered he had consumed a decent amount of alcohol and marijuana earlier on Sunday evening.

"While speaking with the victim, she told Officers that Osorio had not threatened her in any way and she had not been injured," police said.

Osorio was arrested without incident and taken to the police station.

He has been charged with breaking and entering a vehicle and police said he had an outstanding warrant for another incident of breaking and entering.
