THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (Oct. 20, 2014) – They went on a few dates—but don’t expect another one.

A California woman ended up stuck for hours trying to get into the Thousand Oaks home of a man she met online and went out on several dates with, KTLA reports. She apparently decided the chimney would be her best entry point.

Deputies responded to the home around 5:45 a.m. Sunday after a caller reported hearing screams coming from the chimney. Investigators later said the woman had been there for six hours.

Crews used dish soap to lubricate the flue and lift the woman out of the chimney. She was then placed in a rescue basket and hoisted away by a ladder truck. She went to an area hospital for evaluation.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department identified the woman as Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa, 30, Thousand Oaks.

The man who lived at the home told KTLA he’d gone on a few dates with her but had recently ended the relationship. He also said he’d spotted her on his roof two weeks ago and called police then.

Nunez-Figueroa was arrested on preliminary charges of illegally entering a residence and providing false information to a peace officer.
