Kingston, Ont., police have charged a 24-year-old man with being unlawfully in a dwelling after they found him lying in a bed in the wrong apartment.

Officers responded to a report shortly after noon Tuesday that a man had unlawfully entered a residence in an apartment complex in Kingston's east end.

The 24-year-old was found lying in bed with a baseball bat when police and the property manager searched the residence, according to a news release from Kingston Police.

The tenant was not home at the time.
