LOU WATERS, CNN ANCHOR: An unexpected house guest dropped in on a family in Oklahoma, and he didn't come in through bathroom window. He fell through the ceiling.
Reporter Valerie Sukavati (ph), from CNN affiliate KTUL in Tulsa, has our report.
ANN PRICE, HOMEOWNER: This is the hole that the man fell out of. Evidently he slipped or something and fell through the hole.
VALERIE SUKAVATI, KTUL REPORTER (voice-over): Ann Price says she almost ran into the man before he ran out the back door. She says strange things have been happening for a couple of months. She heard noises, but thought it might be mice. Food in her refrigerator had been missing, but she thought it might be her children. Even the cat had some attic insulation on her fur from time to time.
But it wasn't until her uninvited visitor fell through her ceiling that she knew a man had been living above her family.
A. PRICE: I think he was living up there when nobody's here. Coming down at night when we were asleep.
SUKAVATI: Her 18-year-old daughter Katana says that's exactly what he was doing.
KATANA PRICE: I had -- I went to bed, I always shut my door when go to bed. And when I had -- I wouldn't sleep, I had just laid down, and I rolled over and I saw a white man sitting in my room.
A. PRICE: And this is garage, this is where he was getting in and living at. He would go up these stairs and he would go through here.
SUKAVATI: There's bits of trash in the cramped attic, egg cartons, a water jug, a paper bag, evidence left behind. A police officer also found this box with a hardcore pornographic magazine inside. They even suspect he cut their alarm wires. But the gaping hole in Ann's ceiling is a reminder of the stranger living in their attic.
