Woman wakes to find ‘undie wearing’ stranger lurking in her loungeroom

A man wearing only underpants and carrying a woman’s wig has been arrested after a woman found him lurking in her loungeroom.

Just after 11.30pm on Tuesday, the woman woke to find the stranger standing inside the living room of her Maryville home.

The woman told the man to leave and he ran out the front door.


A short time later, officers sighted a man running along a street in his underpants and arrested him.

He was allegedly carrying a pile of women’s clothing and a woman’s wig at the time.

The man was taken to Newcastle Police Station and charged with enter dwelling with intent and peep and pry.

He was refused bail to appear at Newcastle Local Court today.
