Man Sets Up Camera And Finds Woman Is Living In His Cupboard

A man set up a camera in his home after noticing items going missing, and found that a woman had been secretly living in his cupboard.


Joe Cummings, from Manhattan, New York, claimed back in 2009, when the video was first shared, that someone had been peeing in his kitchen sink and stealing his food.

So he set up a camera to get to the bottom of it, and discovered that a stranger had been lurking in his cupboard all along.

Twelve years on from the shocking discovery, the video is once again doing the rounds, with millions watching in horror.

In the grainy night-vision footage, a figure is seen dropping out of a high cupboard, carefully stepping down onto a table and down onto the floor.

The woman then heads straight over to the sink, where she takes a leak before opening the fridge to grab some drinks and snacks.

After sitting down on the sofa and watching some telly, she then returns to the fridge for more food before hiding once again when she hears Joe coming.

According to reports, Joe later called the police and the woman was arrested. It appears as though she had been living in his cupboard for two weeks.

Writing on YouTube, Joe said: "I have no idea how she got in there. The only way in is through the window as I am on the top floor and there is a fire escape.

"The police think she was probably coming in to rob me when I was gone and decided to stay in the crawl space.

"Supposedly this isn't the first time the cops had come across something like this."

But it's not just strangers that people have found in their homes, a woman recently revealed that she had a secret room.

Have a look for yourself:


TikTok user @rooney8900 explained to her followers that she bought the house 'a few months ago' and have since been slowly working their way through cleaning out the various cupboards and closets when she noticed that one of the cabinets could be moved.

In the clip she explains: "I was working on this one and as you can see, the old lady that lived here saved everything.

"But I noticed that this moved and looking into it, I can see there's a space back here.

"So my kids said I should tape it while moving it and see what's back there."

The woman then manages to gain entry to the room and that's when things got a lot creepier.

In a follow-up, the camera pans over the room that is crammed full of stuff - books, ornaments and art work, but it's the collection of dolls that really gave social media users the shivers.
