On Saturday, Greensboro police say, Maddie finally confronted her "ghost" after hearing something rattling in her closet.
The closet door was still closed and Maddie asked the man if he was going to do anything to hurt her. "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".
"Since I've been living here, I've had pieces of clothes missing like shirts and trousers", Maddie said.
Maddie and her roommate thought they had a ghost because of the missing items and odd handprints - until Saturday when the young woman says she found 30-year-old Andrew Swofford in her apartment. "Are you gonna do anything?' And he's like no, no, no".
She tried to call police on her Apple watch but it failed to work.
The intruder left when Maddie's boyfriend arrived, but he was later arrested. My sock. My shoes.
According to Maddie, Swofford was not just wearing her clothes, but he also had a bag "full of my clothes", she told WFMY. She talked to him for about 10 minutes and texted photos to her boyfriend.
"He tries on my hat, goes in my bathroom and looks in the mirror". "But he never touched me".
She continued talking to the man out of shock.
"Since I've been living here, I've been having like pieces of clothes missing".
A university student thought her apartment was haunted after some of her stuff began to disappear and handprints started appearing on mirrors.
Praise to Maddie for the zen she channeled when handling the situation. They said their doors are always locked and they did not see any damage to them.
According to local media, the building's property management are attempting to figure out how Swafford was able to get inside the unit. "I slept with my roommate in her bed", Maddie told Fox 8 earlier this week.
'I can't stay here.
"Every time I go in [my room] there's a bad vibe", she told Fox 8. I'm just ready to leave, ' she said. Swofford was taken to Guilford County jail, and given a $26,000 bond, Fox 8 reported. Swofford was charged with misdemeanor breaking and entering, Glenn said.
Police say that was 30-year-old Andrew Swofford, now sitting in the Guilford County Jail. A request for comment from the apartment's corporate office was not immediately returned.
