WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Wichita police are looking for a man who may be a burglar but at least he likes being clean.

A woman reported that she returned home after an errand Friday night and found her basement laundry room in disarray with clothes scattered and bleach poured on them.

She went upstairs to call her husband and said a man wearing only blue boxer shorts came up from the basement, grabbed her purse and ran out the door.

Police Sgt. Diane Varnell said the woman was able to chase the man down and recover her purse.

The woman said she found the man's jeans and belt in her washing machine. Varnell said it appears the man needed to wash his clothes and broke into the house through a basement skylight because it appeared no one was home.
