SHEBOYGAN – A 31-year-old man is facing multiple charges after he set a south side Sheboygan home on fire twice.
Anouphong Inphachack, of 1329 Jefferson Avenue in Sheboygan, was charged Monday with two felony counts of arson of a building, two misdemeanor counts of graffiti, two misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property and misdemeanor carrying a concealed weapon.
According to the criminal complaint, Sheboygan Police were first called to a home in the 900 block of Kentucky Avenue on September 11th for a report of graffiti on the side of the residence. The letters “DNA” were spray painted in black paint just below the front living room windows. Then on September 13th, an officer on routine patrol noticed fresh graffiti on the siding of the residence, again with the letters “DNA.”
On September 19, 2017, an officer was in the 1100 block of Kentucky Avenue in reference to an unrelated incident when he was approached by the home owner, who wished to report that someone had started his porch on fire and that he had put it out with a water hose.
Police were called to the residence again on September 24th for a broken window. The cost to repair the window was $500 according to the criminal complaint. Inphachack is accused of setting fire to the home for the second time in less than a month on October 4th. A witness observed a man get out of a vehicle with a 5-gallon gas can and later saw flames from the residence.
When questioned, Inphachack told Sheboygan Police that an aliens virus was making him upset, and aliens used black magic to undo the fires he set. “They are switching dimensions all the time,” Inphachack told police. “Setting people up for a bad time. I’m telling you the truth. Alien virus to evolve mankind.”
Police found that Inphachack is schizophrenic, and when police questioned his parents they said he had refused to take his medication and wasn’t eating.
