A woman found a naked 19-year-old man hiding in her 14-year-old daughter's closet after coming home from work on Thursday, a report states.

The woman recognized the suspect, Justin Linton, as the same man she had told to stay away from her daughter several times before, a report states.

Linton, of the 4400 block of Old Mims Road, was arrested on a charge of statutory rape after he admitted to deputies he had sex with the girl, the report says.
