Pennsylvania woman says ex secretly lived in attic for weeks


A Pennsylvania woman said her ex-boyfriend was secretly living in her attic for three weeks.

The woman said she saw signs inside her home that someone else might be living there.

The first sign was the way he left the toilet seat.

The second was a blanket she found in a corner of her basement where no one ever went.

“I had an intuition about it, but I ignored it. I brushed it aside,” the woman said. “I didn’t want to seem paranoid or, you know, you never think this will happen to you but I should have trusted my instinct because I was right.”

The woman had a restraining order against her ex, but Saturday night she found him standing in the middle of her bedroom.

He grabbed her by the face. She fought him off and got help.

Police say the ex-boyfriend told them he was homeless.
