ROCK HILL, S.C., Sept. 11 (UPI) -- A South Carolina woman said she was shocked to discover her ex-boyfriend from 12 years ago has been living in her attic.

The Rock Hill mother of five, who identified herself as Tracy, said her one-year relationship with the 44-year-old man, whose name was not released, ended 12 years ago due to his drug use and conviction for robbing a flower shop, The Charlotte (N.C.) Observer reported Tuesday.

Tracy, whose children range in age from 3 to 20, said she does not know how long the man was staying in her attic before being discovered by her nephew Sunday, but she started noticing strange noises and insulation falling from her ceiling Saturday evening.

The mother, who said the man helped install new doors on her home a year ago, said her nephew found the man sleeping in a heating unit in her attic Sunday. She said the man was near a vent he could have used to look into her bedroom.

"It's got me flabbergasted," she said. "How can you look at someone through an air vent?"

Tracy said the man left without explaining himself before police arrived Sunday.

"I want him to be charged with it," she said. "It could be somebody else he does the same thing to, but she might not be so lucky."
