A homeless man's nighttime routine turned bizzare early Saturday morning when a homeless man stumbled upon bones in a vacant Detroit house, police said.

The man found the remains in the 1100 block of Annin Street in the Chaldean Town neighborhood of the city. He told police he entered a vacant home to sleep. When he moved a mattress left in the building, he discovered the bones.

It's unclear whether the remains are from a human, Detroit Police Officer Holly Lowe said. The bones will be taken to the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office for processing.
