Sheriff: Stranger disrobes, gets in woman's hot tub

BANDON, Ore. - A stranger disrobed and climbed into a woman's hot tub with her Thursday morning, the sheriff said.

The man had to be forcibly removed from the hot tub by sheriff's deputies.

Yaroslav Babenko, 37, of San Francisco was charged with criminal trespass and criminal mischief.

A 47-year-old Bandon woman called the sheriff's office before 8 a.m. Thursday to report Babenko had confronted her while she sat alone in the hot tub at her home.

The man took off his clothes and climbed in the tub as the woman called 911. He remained in the tub when she asked him to leave, the sheriff said.

Babenko was still sitting in the hot tub when Coos County Deputies and Bandon Police officers arrived. When he refused their instructions to get out of the tub, the officers forcibly removed him.

He was taken into custody without further incident. Deputies learned Babenko was on his way home to San Francisco when he stopped at the home to use the hot tub, even though he'd never been there before.
