’Burglary suspect’ triggering emergency call was Roomba

Armed police in Oregon stormed a bathroom in a woman’s home after she called 911 to report an intruder. However, officers were surprised to find that the culprit was a trapped Roomba (automated robot vacuum cleaner). The woman, on the call, had said someone was in her bathroom and she could see shadows moving under the door.

Did the woman not know she owned a Roomba? Whose Roomba was it if it wasn't hers?
