Homeless Squatter Lives in Man’s Attic Undetected for Three Months

Homeless Squatter Lives in Man’s Attic Undetected for Three Months
Jun 11, 2014 By eChinacities.com

A homeless man was discovered living in the storage space above someone’s apartment, after the resident noticed his door had been locked from the inside. The man had been squatting there secretly for three months, occasionally sneaking down to steal money that he found lying around the house.

The resident, Wang, had been feeling increasingly suspicious after he noticed that money and other items from around the house kept going missing without any signs of breaking and entering.

Wang eventually called the police on May 29, and the police searched the apartment. They noticed a hole in the ceiling of the kitchen, which they climbed through and discovered that a man had been living up there.

The squatter was identified as Zeng, and had lost his own home in March. He apparently was splitting his time between living at Wang’s and a neighbour’s house. He had accessed the attic space from outside.

During his time there, Zeng had stolen nearly 2,000 RMB in loose change and also used the kitchen to cook for himself when he was hungry.
