Brandon Goodenbour

MOORHEAD - Two homeowners here received early Halloween scares overnight.

At 1:20 a.m., the Moorhead Police Department responded to a burglary call at the 400 block of 17th Street South, where an intoxicated male wearing zombie-style makeup with a backpack had walked into the residence. The homeowner confronted him with a handgun, and the intruder left the house.

Officers responding to the scene found that a male matching the description had run into another home on the same block. Officers entered the home and found the suspect hiding in the attic.

It was later determined that the suspect knew people living at the second house.

The man was identified as Brandon Goodenbour, 20, of Fargo, and was taken to Clay County Jail on charges of trespassing and minor consumption.

In an unrelated incident occurring about 10 minutes later, a woman returned to her home on the 1000 block of Third Street South in Moorhead to find an intoxicated man passed out on her couch.

Police arrested the man and took him to detox.
