An employee who had reportedly fallen asleep during his work shift at the Macy's Department Store placed emergency responders at the scene late last night after the employee was accidentally locked inside the store.

According to preliminary reports, police were called to the store a little after 8 p.m. after receiving reports of a person stuck inside.

Arriving units located the male victim inside the locked establishment prompting them to contact firefighters and other assistance.

The man was eventually freed from the store where police confirmed his identity and took a statement.

According to reports, while on a lunch break, the man fell asleep inside a room designated for employee breaks, when he was inadvertently locked inside the store at closing.

The man woke up and found that the store was closed and had no way of exiting the store.

There were no physical injuries reported.
