Locked-out woman wrongly arrested for burglary
A woman in Winterthur was arrested for attempted burglary – but it seems she was locked out of her apartment and was trying to climb back in through the balcony.
But she had the wrong flat.
A local resident reported the woman to the police who quickly responded.
The woman, who works as a nurse, was detained, but the mix-up was soon sorted out after the neighbors confirmed her identity.
The owner of the flat she was trying to enter dropped the charges.
