CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Police in New Hampshire say a stranger has been accused of breaking into a home, taking off his clothes, and assaulting a sleeping child before he was restrained.

Police say the man entered the Concord home shortly after 4 a.m. Monday. He made his way into the child’s bedroom and disrobed. Police say he then assaulted the child, who was able to run away and alert family members.

A man who lives in the house was able to restrain the man while other household members called police. Police arrested 28-year-old Miles Anderson, of Concord, on charges of burglary, indecent exposure, and simple assault.

Anderson faced arraignment Tuesday; it wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
