Police have arrested a 24-year-old Signal Mountain man after a woman found a man in her downtown condo.

Clay Walker Henley, of 2637 Laurel Creek Dr., was charged with aggravated burglary.

In the incident that happened Dec. 13 shortly after 5 a.m., police responded to Lovemans on Market at 800 Market.

The resident said she had seen a white male in her house. She said she heard noises from outside of her bedroom and thought it was possibly the newspaper being delivered.

She said she went to check and, when returning from her front entrance to her bedroom, she noticed a man standing by the sliding door leading to her patio area.

She said she grabbed a glass vase near her, screamed and yelled at the intruder to get out of her house.

The woman said the man, who was wearing pants and a windbreaker, looked confused and did not act aggressively toward her.

She said she again yelled at him to leave.

After retrieving her cell phone from the bedroom, she said she searched her house but did not find anything. Some neighbors came over and also helped search, but did not locate anyone.

Police also searched and did not find an intruder. Police noticed that the fire exit leading to the rooftop was unsecured from both sides. The woman said it should be locked coming in from the stairwell.

Police advised the woman to alert property management to keep the fire stairwell locked.

Police at a later date were notified by the woman, who said she had hired private investigator Kim Gavin. She said, through surveillance video, she and the investigator were able to identify Henley as the intruder.

If it was more about us, instead of Marsha, she would be hard at work finding compromise on the federal infrastructure bill. No other city in the nation would benefit more from the infrastructure bill than Chattanooga. But Marsha has never read the bill and does not ... (click for more)
