Affidavit: Man charged with burglary, entered south Austin home naked


AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man was charged with burglary of a home following a SWAT situation in south Austin on March 7, according to an arrest affidavit.

Larry Lydell Robinson, 44, is accused of entering a home on Merle Drive, which is near Ben White Boulevard and Menchaca Road around noon on March 7, court documents state. KXAN reached out to Robinson’s attorney for a statement. This story will be updated when we receive a response.

In the affidavit, the owner called police after encountering a naked man inside her home. The owner said she was arriving back at the house and was letting her dog in from the backyard when the incident happened.

The owner said they turned around and saw a man walking toward her. He appeared to be “smoking narcotics from a glass pipe while staring at her,” the affidavit said.

Police said the owner was “very scared” and feared for her life. She jumped out of a window to get away. Police arrived at the home shortly after, the affidavit said.

The man is accused of damaging items inside of the home, punching holes in the wall and injuring the homeowner when he kicked an empty dog crate at her, the affidavit said.

SWAT was called to the area because the man was barricaded “inside a home that contained guns and venomous snakes,” the affidavit said.

Police said the man was taken into custody around 2:30 p.m. “without incident.”

During a police interview, the man said he decided to go into the house through the back door after hearing a woman’s voice, court documents state.
