A Bluffton woman was awakened by her neighbor rubbing her leg at about 1 p.m. Tuesday, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.
When the 27-year-old woman awoke in her Heritage Lakes home and saw the 43-year-old man, she screamed, according to the report.
The man ran through the unlocked garage, and the woman called 911, the report said. The neighbor told deputies he had only briefly left his house that day to walk his dog. The man also said he suffers short-term memory loss as a result of an accident nearly a decade ago, according to the report.
He was charged with misdemeanor trespassing and released from the Beaufort County Detention Center that afternoon on a personal recognizance bond, according to the jail log.
