SA stu­dent steals bus to get to exam

JO­HAN­NES­BURG — South African me­dia say a high school stu­dent stole a bus in a des­per­ate ef­fort to get to his fi­nal year math­e­mat­ics ex­ams.

Broad­caster ENCA re­ported last Thurs­day that Le-aan Ado­nis got be­hind the wheel when the driver failed to show up.

Ado­nis told ENCA he found the keys in the bus. Other stu­dents said they asked the 20-year-old to drive be­cause they trusted he could han­dle a bus.

The broad­caster said a traf­fic of­fi­cer stopped the bus a short dis­tance from the school in a vil­lage in the Western Cape prov­ince, and fined Ado­nis fined M5 000 rand.

Ac­cord­ing to ENCA, Ado­nis faces a school dis­ci­plinary hear­ing. He has al­ready re­ceived of­fers of free le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tion and do­na­tions for his fine. The stu­dents ar­rived on time for their exam. — AP

Bur­glar climbs naked into cou­ple’s bed

PORT­LAND — A naked bur­glar who hopped into a Port­land, Ore­gon cou­ple’s bed in the middle of the night wound up flee­ing down the street af­ter the male vic­tim woke up and chased him with a gun, fir­ing three shots.

Port­land po­lice say Dean Defeudis (32) broke into a Port­land home around 3 a.m. last Thurs­day, gath­ered items of value and then stripped naked, climbed into bed with a man and woman and then kissed the man.

“The vic­tim woke up and the sus­pect was sit­ting on top of him hold­ing a knife,” Port­land Po­lice Sergeant Pete Simp­son said in a writ­ten state­ment. “The vic­tim pushed the sus­pect off of him as the vic­tim re­trieved his hand­gun and be­gan giv­ing the sus­pect com­mands to stop.”

“The sus­pect put his pants on and ran out of the home, chased by the vic­tim who fired three shots near the sus­pect to get him to stop,” Simp­son said. Defeudis was not in­jured in the in­ci­dent. The male vic­tim, who was also un­hurt, was not ex­pected to face charges in the in­ci­dent.
