Naked, bloody man breaks into Havasu woman’s home

May 3, 2019

A naked and bloody man was arrested at gunpoint at a Lake Havasu City residence after he broke into a woman’s residence.

According to city police, Cody Mason Noe, 20, was charged with two misdemeanors, disorderly conduct and criminal damage, after he allegedly broke into a Palmer Drive residence at about 2:43 a.m. Tuesday.

According to information from a 911 dispatcher, a woman called reporting she was alone in her home and a man she identified as Noe was pounding on a door, yelling “Open the (expletive) door.”

When two officers arrived, they entered the home with their guns drawn because they weren’t sure of the exact circumstances. When one of the officers encountered Noe, he was in the bathroom. When he came out, he was naked and had a large, bleeding cut above his right eye and blood covering his face.

According to police, Noe was handcuffed and medics were called. While waiting for them, Noe allegedly made statements that included “I love you guys” and “Oh, you know” when he was asked what happened.

Medics tried to treat Noe at the scene, but he was combative and he was taken to the hospital.

Eight days later, police arrested Noe at a Hickory Drive residence and taken to the city jail.

Noe has been involved in a number of alleged incidents during the last 2 ½ years, according to News-Herald archives.

According to a News-Herald story, Noe was drunk when he pointed a handgun at another man riding a skateboard in December 2016 at the Aquatic Center. He was arrested for that and for felony theft when it was learned the gun was stolen.

He was also arrested in October 2016 for criminal trespass at a residence on Bonanza Place.

Then, in February 2019, Noe was charged after police said he rolled an off-road vehicle in the area of Snead Drive and fled the scene without contacting police.

Noe’s grandfather told officers the vehicle was valued at $50,000 and said Noe didn’t have permission to use it.
