A couple woke up in middle of the night in horror after feeling a stranger sleeping in their bed, according to police in Wisconsin.

River Falls police said that they were called to an apartment at 1119 State Street, after the couple turned on the light in their bedroom and saw an unknown black man in their bed.

According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded on Saturday morning around 4:00 a.m. A 32-year-old man told investigators that he felt something rubbing up against him in bed.

His girlfriend was sleeping with him, but it was not her touch.

He woke up his girlfriend, feeling that they were not alone in their bed. He got up to turn on the light in the room. The light revealed a stranger sharing their bed.

The man woke him up. He apologized for intruding into the couple's apartment. The suspect was escorted out the front door.

The suspect returned a few minutes later, looking for his cellphone. The man promised to call him if he finds it. The suspect was described as a black man, around 5 foot 10 inches, wearing shorts and black socks.

Police officers who arrived at the scene, found a trail of gum on the floor of the property along with the suspect’s cellphone.

The suspect, a 32-year-old man, eventually showed up at the police station. He said that he was sorry, and he thought it was his friend's apartment.

He was given a $187 citation for trespassing. Police returned his cellphone and gum.
