A 32-year-old Lake Charles man charged with home invasion, theft and criminal trespassing, ran naked through St. Patrick Hospital, city police said.

Deputy Chief Mark Kraus said Jessie Ray Bushnell, 2013 La. 14, was arrested Monday morning.

“Officer were dispatched to the 500 block of Shell Beach Drive in reference to a disturbance and fight,” Kraus said. “The victim told officers that Bushnell showed up at his residence and started knocking on his back door at 6:15 a.m.

“The victim said Bushnell was telling him to let him in the residence, claiming he lived there.”

Kraus said Bushnell refused to leave the property, took off his clothes and again tried to get into the home.

“The victim said he pushed Bushnell out of his garage and Bushnell got into his vehicle and sped away,” Kraus said. “Officers located Bushnell’s vehicle at St. Patrick’s Hospital. Officers were informed by hospital staff that a half-naked man was running around in the hospital.”

Kraus said a woman at the hospital said Bushnell ran up and removed her purse out of a chair.

“Officers were able to locate Bushnell on the second floor of the hospital in a restricted area and found the purse in his possession.”

Bond was set at $113,000.
