(ABC 6 News) - A 36-year-old Austin man was arrested after neighbors witnessed bizarre behavior outside a southwest Austin home. 

Witnesses told police they saw the man enter the unoccupied home in the 600 block of 10th Avenue SW around 3:30 Wednesday afternoon.

When he came back out five minutes later, they say he was waving a vase of red flowers in a “Sign Of The Cross” motion.

The owner arrived at the home while police were talking to the man and said she had no idea who he was or why he had gone into her house.

The suspect was jailed on a "trespass” charge.
