Cape Town - A man who was caught breaking into a Cape Town home tried evading capture by telling the owner of the house he was having sex, it was reported on Monday.

The 34-year-old Philippi home owner, who did not want to be named, told the Daily Voice that he saw the lock of his shack had been removed on Friday afternoon.

He said he tried entering but the door was locked from the inside. He asked who was there and eventually got a reply.

"The man inside my own house said to me I must wait because he's still having sex with a girl so he'll open up when he is done," the owner said.

"I couldn't understand how someone would want to walk into a stranger's home and have sex."

After repeatedly knocking on the door, the man opened up for him and then stabbed him with a tool.

He ran away but was later caught by the community and beaten up.

"When he was lying on the ground, we searched him and found my wallet and flash drive," the man said.

It was not clear whether the alleged burglar was charged by the police.
