MANCHESTER, NH – A couple awoke Tuesday to find a stranger sleeping in their spare bedroom, and held him there at gunpoint until police arrived and placed him under arrest.

Renaud “Junior” Plaisir, 28, of 495 Wellington Road, was charged with burglary.

Police said it appears Plaisir climbed through a window of the residence on Hubbard Street – about a mile from his own residence – and that he had some cash in his pocket that he allegedly stole from the couple.

The woman’s husband confronted Plaisir and the two had a brief argument. Police said the  husband then held Plaisir at gunpoint until police arrived.

Plaisir was arraigned Tuesday morning in District Court.
