In the city of St. Louis, there have been a total of 38 murders reported this year so far and the month of May ended with an especially tragic and random slaying.

In addition to some of these cases of horrific crime, in the St. Louis metro area there were also a handful of truly bizarre criminal acts -- including a nude, drunken break-in, the comically clumsy police chase and more.

Check out our summaries below of the most violent -- and the most strange -- local crime stories of the last 30 days.

12. The Poorly Planned AK-47 Pizza Robbery Plot

Police didn't have too hard a time tracking down the suspects who plotted to rob a Domino's deliveryman with an AK-47 assault rifle.

In part, that's because Ava Jackson, twenty, apparently ordered the pizza with her phone -- to the block where she lives.

Hope that pizza tasted good!

10. Naked, Drunk Stranger At Your Bedroom Door

A St. Charles county resident was likely quite perplexed when he woke up to the sound of banging on his bedroom door in the middle of the night.

When he opened the door -- armed -- he saw a naked, very drunk man on the other side. Police say the suspect was a total stranger who the homeowner then held at gunpoint until cops arrived.
