HOUSTON A 24-year-old man is accused of forcing his way into a woman s home after he showed up at her doorstep naked Sunday in northwest Harris County, sheriff s deputies said.

Andrew Abernathy, of Cypress, was arrested and is charged with indecent exposure and criminal trespass.

The victim said she heard a noise outside her apartment at 10 a.m. and opened her front door to find Abernathy naked on her doorstep.

She asked him to leave, but he refused. Abernathy then started to masturbate in front of her, court documents state.

Deputies said Abernathy then ran into the woman s home and she screamed for help. A neighbor called 911 earlier after he saw Abernathy walking around the parking lot naked.

Deputies arrived and were forced to use a Taser on Abernathy to subdue him.

Abernathy remains in jail on Tuesday morning with bail set at $5,000.
