(Scroll down for video) A woman woke up during the night, to find a man eating her food.

The 28-year-old man of Wichita, Kansas, was arrested on suspicion of burglary after he was found eating cookie dough from the woman’s freezer in the early hours of the morning.

The woman said that she and her daughter awoke about 3:00 a.m., when the man rang their doorbell and attempted to come inside the home.

The woman immediately called police. Meanwhile, the man went to the back of her home, found an unlocked door and entered the kitchen.

When the woman came out of her room, she found the stranger in her kitchen eating from her box of cookie dough.

Wichita Police spokesperson Lt. James Espinoza said that the man told police he thought that he was at his aunt’s house and he was hungry.

The 52-year-old woman who lives at the house, was not injured. She said that when police arrived they found the suspect with a mouthful of cookie dough.

The homeowner now laughs about the incident, but said that it was very scary when it occurred. The unfinished box of cookie dough was thrown into the garbage can.
