A Loudon man is facing charges after a burglary attempt when he said he was Jesus Christ.

Loudon Police Officer Brandon Nix was dispatched Monday to Cedar Street for a possible breaking and entering.

A couple was in bed asleep when the woman felt someone grab the inside of her arm on the bicep area. She woke her husband to tell him what happened.

Kevin Lynn Cruze, 40, Loudon, then began to yell and state that he was Jesus Christ while waving his arms in the air, according to Nix’s report.

The couple frantically left the apartment in response, and Cruze later exited the apartment. The man was able to follow Cruze to his residence, where Cruze was located in a van by officers. When asked what he was doing in the apartment, Cruze said he was “trying to save his wife and take her to heaven,” Nix wrote in a report.

Cruze was charged with aggravated burglary and held without bond.
