A landlord in Beersheba awoke Sunday morning to find a stranger sleeping on his living room couch. After an unsuccessful attempt to wake up the intruder, the landlord summoned the police, Channel 10 reported on Sunday, who succeeded in reviving the man.

The sleeping stranger, the police determined, was actually a burglar who had fallen asleep or passed out while he was attempting to rob the home. The man, a 37-year-old Beersheba resident, was arrested and police suspect he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
