Matthew Castro 18 was charged with trespassing for allegedly living inside a family's attic in their home in Mount Juliet Tenn

A Tennessee man accused of secretly living in a family's attic and sneaking into their 14-year-old daughter's room at night was arrested after the girl's mother reportedly discovered him earlier this month.

Investigators say Casto had been living in the attic "for some time".

When she screamed at him to leave, the woman told police Casto ran to her 14-year-old daughter's bedroom, which was attached to the attic via a wardrobe door.

The girl's mother reportedly said she came home and saw Castro standing at the top of the staircase.

In February this year, a North Carolina college student, who feared a ghost was haunting her digs after objects started disappearing and hand prints appeared on the walls, came home to find the real culprit, a homeless man, wearing her clothes.

Matthew Casto was arrested after hiding in an attic near a teenage girl's bedroom.

Castro was charged with aggravated criminal trespassing and was warned not to have contact with the daughter.

He was released on bail and will appear in court.
