MARLBOROUGH (AP) -- A Marlborough man who fell asleep in a chair in his living room over the weekend got quite the surprise when he woke up -- a bloody stranger asleep on the couch.

The homeowner got his wife, children and father-in law out of the home at about 4:30 a.m. Saturday and called police.

The MetroWest Daily News (http://bit.ly/1rS3Gjk ) reports that responding officers arrested 30-year-old Timothy Francis Benway and charged him with entering a building at night, putting a person in fear, and vandalism.

Police say Benway’s injuries were consistent with a "highly intoxicated" person walking through a wooded area and falling down.

Bail was set at $500 at Benway’s arraignment Monday. He told police he had no idea how he got injured or how he ended up in the home.
