A man in his mid-forties got a huge scare when he returned home from work to find someone had broken into his home.

However, the intruder didn’t take anything from the house – merely cleaned it from top to bottom!

Nate Roman from Marlborough, Massachusetts, found that someone had neatly made the beds, vacuumed the rugs, and scrubbed the toilets, the Boston Globe reports.

They had even made ornate origami roses on the toilet paper rolls in his bathrooms. Every room in his house was cleaned, except for the kitchen.

He reported the incident to police and said he found it “weird and creepy.” There were no signs of a break-in so he believes he may have left a door open.

“We have not received any reports similar to this in other locations, and we have no suspects at this time,” said Police Sergeant Daniel Campbell.

The “culprit” has still not been found, however Nate says he thinks that perhaps a cleaning service was booked in by someone who simply came to the wrong address.

“It’s funny now, but didn’t feel funny at the time,” Roman said. “I kept the toilet paper roses as souvenirs.”
