(KMOV.com) -- Police said a soldier, suffering from a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, broke into his commanding officer's home on Monday.

Deputies with the Pulaski County Sheriff's office responded to the home on Rhyme Lane around 4 p.m. after reports of a burglary.  When officers arrived, they found the soldier inside the home. 

Officials said the man was exhibiting suicidal behavior when they found him.  He was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

The soldier's commanding officer was notified of the incident, but declined to press charges.  According to KOLR news, the soldier told investigators that his commander's home was "the only place he felt safe."  

The soldier is stationed at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri.
