intrude (verb) force oneself upon others.

When you intrude, you force yourself upon others; that is, you are at and you go to places where you are unwanted. For example, if you interrupt others' conversation, you intrude upon their conversation. You intrude also if you get involved in others' affairs without their liking it. Your intrusion in such cases even annoys them. To intrude is also to disturb others. 'The noise of something falling intruded into their quiet conversation.' This means that their conversation was disturbed by the noise of something falling down.
