The woman who asked not to be identified said she heard strange noises when she and her five children returned home Saturday. She says the noises increased early Sunday morning and she asked a nephew to check the attic.
He found a man sleeping in a heating unit.
The woman says she had broken off a relationship with the man years ago, though he had done some work on her home about a year ago.
The nephew says the man was able to look through air vents into the woman’s bedroom.
She says the man climbed out of the attic and walked away before police arrived.
