A Louisiana man with 20 prior arrests was found dropping down from the attic of a woman’s apartment where he had been secretly living, authorities say.

Gregory Bonnette, 33, was living in the attic of an apartment complex in Lacassine when he assumed no one was home, according to a report from the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office.

But the tenant was in her apartment when Bonnette decided to sneak in from above; when he realized the woman was home Monday, he left the apartment and ran away, according to the report.

The apartment complex owner called the police on Bonnette, who was later arrested and booked on two counts of unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, the sheriff’s office said.

Deputies said Bonnette had been arrested 20 times before but did not specify what crimes he was accused of in those cases.
