It's every child's worst nightmare: a stranger or monster hiding under the bed.
In the case of a homeowner in New Jersey, the nightmare was real.
Police in Middlesex County say an intruder hid under a bed in a spare bedroom for three days.
Jason Hubbard got into the home on Ellenel Blvd. in Spotswood through an open door back in May.
While hiding, he used an electric outlet under the bed to charge four cell phones, according to investigators.
The homeowner heard a noise at about 7 p.m. on May 10 and discovered Hubbard.
He called police who arrested Hubbard and charged him with criminal trespass, burglary and theft of services.
The incident was made public this week.
Hubbard was held at Middlesex County Adult Corrections Center.
