A UC Berkeley fraternity member tried to force his way into a shower at a sorority house during an invasion early Friday, police said.

Javaid Ansari, 20, a member of Phi Kappa Tau, was arrested on suspicion of burglary after officers found him inside Pi Beta Phi, said Berkeley police Officer Mary Kusmiss.

Kusmiss said the incident began about 3:30 a.m. when Ansari, under the influence of alcohol, entered the house through a window he broke.

The house mother confronted Ansari, telling him to wait on the stairs while she called police, Kusmiss said.

Instead, the intruder ran upstairs and entered a bathroom where a sorority member was taking a shower, Kusmiss said.

Saying he wanted to "take a shower" with the woman, Ansari staged an unsuccessful attempt to open the shower door, Kusmiss said.

Police nabbed Ansari as he followed another woman toward her room, Kusmiss said.
