A student found a man in her clothes going through her closet in an apartment just steps away from the college.
The University of North Carolina student, named only as Maddie, said she found 30-year-old Andrew Swafford wearing her socks and shoes and holding a bag of her clothes this weekend.
According to Maddie, she had noticed items of clothing going missing for some time in the run up to Sunday's discovery.
Maddie said she stayed with Swofford for about 10 minutes before her boyfriend arrive and he fled the building.
Police in Greensboro then arrested Swofford a block away from the apartment complex. He was charged with misdemeanor breaking and entering, although police spokesperson Ron Glenn said Swofford was 'not violent'.
