The Anderson County Sheriff's Office said a man is in custody after he climbed naked into a neighbor's window.

Deputies said around 11 p.m. on July 29, they were called to a burglary in progress at a home on Old Greenville Highway. When they got on scene, deputies said they found a man holding 32-year-old Lorenzo Gamble at gunpoint.

According to the incident report, Gamble was lying naked and face-down on the floor of the home.

The victim told deputies Gamble entered a window of the home and began asking for a female. The homeowner said he retrieved his firearm and asked Gamble to leave, but he didn't so he held him at gunpoint until deputies arrived.

The report states that Gamble told deputies he was mentally disabled and on ADHD medication but didn't know what he was doing at the home.

Deputies said they talked to an individual at a neighboring residence who identified himself as Gamble's roommate. According to the report, the man said "Gamble normally acts fine and they have never seen him act as if he had a disability."

Gamble was arrested and transported to the Anderson County Detention Center.

According to an arrest warrant, after being transported to the jail, Gamble tried to escape custody by running outside the detention center gate while handcuffed. Deputies were able to apprehend him across the street on David Lee Coffee Place.

Gamble is currently being held at the detention center on charges for trespassing, indecent exposure and escape.
