A man who spent three hours licking a doorbell as a family slept inside their home has been charged with prowling and theft.

Ronaldo Abalos,35, was pictured taking part in the bizarre act on the home CCTV in Salinas, California, on Saturday morning.

A family called police when, to their shock, they found the footage on their home surveillance. The homeowners were out of town, but their children were inside. They didn't wake up to the noise, but the families surveillance system alerts them when there's movement by the front door.

“I thought I’ve seen it all, but this takes the cake,” neighbor Alfred Santos said.

As well as prowling and theft, Abalos has been charged with breaching his probation for a previous crime.
