SHEBOYGAN, Wisc. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - "Aliens made me do it."
That's what a Wisconsin man said after being accused of vandalizing and then trying to burn down a home multiple times.
The family who is renovating the home says for a month someone has been damaging their property.
Attorneys say it started with someone spray painting the letters DNA on the house.
Last week, the vandal tried burning the house down, by lighting the porch on fire for the second time.
Police say a neighbor spotted a 31-year-old man holding a gas can and he was arrested.
"Some of what he said was unable to be comprehended, but he made comments during the interview about aliens and alien virus," said Sheboygan County District Attorney Joel Urmanski.
According to the criminal complaint, the suspect thought he had been infected with an "alien virus" and aliens had "modified his DNA."
The complaint says the suspect admitted he suffers from schizophrenia.
