Joe Cummings, the owner of the Manhattan house, first shared a video on subject through YouTube and the footage showed a woman carefuly climbing out of the storage area leading up to his kitchen.

The man started noticing that some food was disappearing from his fridge and kitchen counter and initially thought that his girlfriend, who also lived in the apartment at the time, was to blame.

However, after confronting her, he learned that she hadn't stolen the food. This set off alarms in his head and led him to get a night vision camera, which he set up pointing directly at the kitchen.

Cummings let the camera rolling during the night and when he checked the footage the next day he was shocked to see a strange woman carefully climing down a vent onto his table.

The woman moved incredibily slowly and precisely in order to keep quiet, and even grabbed a stool to climb down from the table so she wouldn't make any noise jumping down.

Next, she is seen going to the kitchen sink, which she used as a bathroom, before goingy to the fridge and then the pantry, grabbing food and beverages along the way.

The intruder was spotted calmly eating the food and even sitting down to enjoy her meal and watch some TV. At one point, she quickly hides as Cummings enters the kitchen in the middle of the night to have a glass of water.

As Cummings goes back to his room, the woman helps herself to some more food before quietly climbing back into the vent, being careful enough to leave everything exactly as it was before her arrival.

Cummings was quick to contact the police, who immediately caught the woman. According to the officers, she might have gotten in with the intention of stealing but found the small space and decided to live in it.

Based on the condition the small area was in, police believed that the woman had been living there from two to three weeks and only comming out to steal food, have a drink and use the bathroom.
