A man who apologized after sleepwalking into a stranger's apartment while completely naked received a blunt warning from a neighbor.
The polite sleepwalker was approached by a man who lives in the same building, located in the 15900 block of Olcott Avenue, early in the morning on Aug. 10, according to a Tinley Park police report. He claims that the neighbor pulled out a loaded gun and warned him that friends come over who sometimes also carry guns.
"We're cool, but we can't have you walking into our apartment again," the neighbor told the sleepwalker on Aug. 10. He also reportedly made sure to show the sleepwalker that the gun's magazine was loaded before walking away.
Police spoke with the neighbor, who gave a different account of the conversation. He told the sleepwalker that "there would be a problem" if he came into the apartment again. The man also told police that the sleepwalker picked up a hammer. That's when he mentioned that he friends own guns.
The sleepwalker declined to sign a complaint, police said. No arrests were reported.
