Boxer-clad man charged with invading home

A 25-year-old South San Francisco man locked in a bedroom by a woman who he reportedly confronted in her home wearing only boxers while she bathed two young children will stand trial at the end of January.

Rodney Rajiv Narayan had already been convicted of misdemeanor trespassing and sentenced to 30 days in jail for similar conduct just nine days before he entered the woman’s South San Francisco home on Aug. 3, according to prosecutors.

At about 4:30 p.m. that day, the woman was bathing her 5- and 8-year-old children when Narayan allegedly appeared in the bathroom doorway clad only in his boxer shorts and telling her to come with him. The intruder got inside using a ladder to the window of a downstairs bedroom whose boarder was not home, prosecutors said.

As the children ran to their room and locked the door, as instructed by their mother, the woman followed the man downstairs. He turned to face her with his hand inside his shorts and the other holding money, telling her to come to him. He walked into a room and, as he entered, she slammed and locked the door, trapping him while she phoned her sister who in turn called police. She hid upstairs and police had to break into the house where they found Narayan locked in the room and lying on a bed.

Prosecutors charged Narayan with first-degree burglary and battery. He pleaded not guilty and is scheduled for jury trial Jan. 27.

According to the District Attorney’s Office, Narayan committed a similar offense which included grabbing a woman’s breast in July. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail with credit of eight days which put him back out of custody for one day before reportedly acting out again. He is also on three years probation.

In the latest case, he remains in custody in lieu of $100,000 bail.
