    Police in Rockland, Massachusetts, have arrested a man they say broke into a home and cooked himself a snack.

    Officers responded to a home at about 1:40 a.m. Wednesday after getting a call from the homeowner.

    Lt. Nick Zeoli tells The Enterprise of Brockton the homeowner was awoken by a loud bang from the kitchen. When the resident went to investigate, he found an intruder cooking corn on the cob on the stove. He told the intruder to leave, and the two men briefly scuffled.

    Police arrested 69-year-old John Dalton and charged him with breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony and assault and battery. Police say Dalton, who was "clearly intoxicated," forced his way inside through a side door.

    It was not clear if Dalton had a lawyer.
