A Lincoln woman found a man sleeping under their 7-year-old's bed. He's been cited for stalking and trespassing.

Lincoln Police officers were called to 16th and Washington early Sunday morning after the woman heard 25-year-old Dangelo Madkins snoring.

Upon investigation, they found Madkins under her 7-year-old daughter's bed with a stun gun, knife, screwdriver and the woman's employee ID.

Officers also located a key to the apartment in his pocket.

Police say Madkins and the woman know each other, but she told police she feared her safety after previous incidents.

Madkins told police he was invited over by the woman and given the key. He had no explanation to LPD as to why he was under her daughter's bed.
