Man from Springfield Accused of Breaking Into Home, Standing Over Couple’s Bed Naked

A man from Springfield is in custody for allegedly breaking into a couples home and stand over them in their bed completely nude.

Investigators say 41-year-old Gene Ferguson broke into the home via an unlocked door in the Delaware neighborhood late Sunday night.

The homeowners were woken up by Ferguson, who was standing over them in the bed naked.

Authorities were called to the scene shortly after, and Ferguson fled the home. He was later arrested still in the Delaware neighborhood.

According to prosecutors, he was arrested and sentenced to probation in 2019 for a similar crime, breaking into a woman’s home and getting in bed with her.

Ferguson is charged with burglary and sexual abuse. He is being held in the Greene County Jail.
