THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. - A woman was rescued then promptly arrested after becoming stuck in a chimney in the Thousand Oaks area of Ventura County, California.
Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa was found wedged in the chimney in the home of a man she had gone on several dates with according to KTLA.
The pair had met online and had gone out together about six times the home's owner told reporters.
Rescue crews responded after they received calls of hearing a woman crying inside the home, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The fire crews, according to KTLA, had to use a jackhammer to break the chimney and dish soap and a rescue basket hooked to a ladder truck to get Nunex-Figueroa out.
She was taken to a local hospital for evaluation before being charged with unauthorized entry of a dwelling and giving false information to a police officer, according to the Los Angeles Times.
According to KCAL, the homeowner said this wasn't the first time she tried to get in the house from the roof.
KCAL reported the woman's family has offered to pay for the damage to the man's home.
