The devil didn't make him do it.
Instead, Levon T. Sarkisyan told police, he was acting on orders from above when he kicked in the door of a Connecticut house and tore the place up.
Sarkisyan, 27, greeted the owners when they arrived home - appropriately on Sunday - and announced his rampage began after "a light from above told him to do this," said Farmington police Sgt. Stephen Egan.
There was another possible explanation: Sarkisyan acknowledged that he had "smoked a strange strand of herb," Egan told The Hartford Courant.
A shirtless Sarkisyan flashed a maniacal grin in his mug shot.
According to cops, the University of Connecticut grad randomly selected the Farmington house, kicked in its front door and used a fireplace poker to smash statues and a marble table.
After inflicting about $10,000 in damage, Sarkisyan jumped into the shower and then rummaged through a closet to find a new outfit - clothes belonging to a now-dead resident of the house.
The suspect didn't put up any resistance to the homeowner or the police, although he unleashed a barrage of bizarre comments.
Asked how he broke in, Sarkisyan "flexed his arm and said, 'You see, super-human strength,'" Egan told the Courant.
He informed the owner, "God wants me to help the world. I mean you no harm." And he made one major miscalculation, insisting that God would not allow a phone call to 911.
The Almighty did not intervene, and Sarkisyan was soon in custody.
He was arrested three years ago for making death threats against his college fraternity brothers, police said.
