Prowler Licks Doorbell for 3 Hours

Prowler Licks Doorbell for 3 Hours

Police in California are looking for man who was caught on surveillance video vigorously licking the doorbell of a family's home for about three hours, before relieving himself in the front yard.

The incident occurred Friday, Jan. 4 around 2 a.m.

The homeowner, Sylvia Dungan, told KION that she was out of town at the time of the licking, but that her children were home. Definitely more than three hours: not a dent was made in this one!

Roberto Daniel Arroyo, 33, was captured taking part in the freaky act on the Dungan's home CCTV in Salinas, California, on Saturday morning. He has not yet been located.

The clear footage shows the man leaning his head against the intercom outside their front door and licking the doorbell from several different angles.

And neighbor Francisco Estrada was also shocked by the unusual display, telling the station: 'I thought I'd seen it all, but this takes the cake'. Sylvia Dungan said an alert to her phone told her about movement outside her home. "I started reviewing the videos, (and said to myself) 'Well, who the heck is this?'"

Police said Arroyo could face misdemeanor charges of petty theft and prowling. "It didn't take us long to identify the individual", Salina Police Department spokesperson Miguel Cabrera said. Authorities say the footage helped them identify the suspect.
