Cops: Naked man claims he was sleepwalking when he invaded apartment, assaulted teen

Steven Craig Seals, 48.

ELIZABETHTON — A city man said he might have been sleepwalking when he entered his neighbor's apartment in the nude on Wednesday evening. Steven Craig Seals, 48, 109 W. G St., was arrested by Officer Sarah Ellison of the Elizabethton Police Department on a charge of aggravated burglary.

The investigation of the incident began with Ellison going to talk to the resident of the invaded apartment. Ellison said the woman is pregnant and was visibly upset by the incident.

Ellison said the woman told her she was sitting in her apartment at 10:45 p.m. with her 16-year-old brother when her neighbor walked through an unlocked front door. She said he was nude. She said upon entering, Seals kicked her brother in the leg, then assumed a defensive stance before leaving through the same door he entered.
