GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina college student says she found a man in her closet wearing her clothes.

Greensboro police spokesman Ron Glenn told news outlets the student at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro came home at lunch Saturday and heard a noise in her closet in her off-campus apartment.

The student, who told Fox 8 her name was Maddie, opened the closet door to find the man, identified by police as 30-year-old Andrew Clyde Swofford, sitting on the floor in her clothing with a bag full of clothes, shoes and socks.

“I just hear rattling in my closet. It sounded like a raccoon in my closet,” Maddie said. “I’m like who’s there? And somebody answers me. He’s like ‘oh my name is Drew.’ I open the door and he’s in there, wearing all of my clothes. My socks. My shoes. And he has a book bag full of my clothes.”

Maddie said she had been noticing her clothing go missing, and that at one point, she and her roommates thought there was a ghost inside.

She said she talked to the Swofford for about 10 minutes and texted photos to her boyfriend, who arrived and asked the man to leave.

Glenn said the man wasn’t violent and doesn’t believe he and the victim know one another.

Police charged Swofford with misdemeanor breaking and entering.
