Pasco man accused of lewd break-in

Man accused of lewd River Ridge break-in

Deputies said this is what a 33-year-old woman saw when she opened her eyes at 5:20 a.m. Oct. 30, inside her River Ridge home:

A naked man, a stranger, wearing only socks and gloves.

He was watching her and touching himself.

She told the man to get out.

He smiled and said nothing and ran out her front door. Neighbors told detectives it might have been Jeremiah Johnson, a 33-year-old grocery store manager who lived in the area. The victim picked Johnson out of a photo lineup, a report states.

Johnson confessed, said Kevin Doll, Pasco Sheriff's spokesman. He was arrested Thursday on charges of burglary of an occupied dwelling and exposure of sexual organs. He remained Friday at the Pasco jail in lieu of $10,150 bail.
