Police say Bacon approached the woman Saturday and repeatedly demanded that she give him the keys to her 2012 Acura MDX, which was parked in her garage.

She did, but then closed the door behind her and called police. Police reports say Bacon was trapped inside until officers arrested him around 7:30 p.m.

He allegedly was sitting in the driver's seat with the keys in the ignition when police got there.
