DURHAM, N.H. — Police thought the young man found in a video store wearing nothing but a pair of women's underwear was the victim of a college prank.
It turned out that Joseph Greenquist, 18, of Londonderry, was later arrested on charges of breaking into apartments near the University of New Hampshire campus, stealing underwear and attempting to assault a woman. Police said a knapsack full of lady's undergarments was stashed nearby.
In one of the apartments, a woman was awoken by the intruder, police said.
"She was awoken by a male climbing on top of her while she was in bed," Deputy Chief Rene Kelley said. "She confronted this man, and after a short conversation, he fled the apartment."
Police said they don't know how Greenquist wound up in the video store.
"And they found the gentleman asleep on our couch, wrapped up in a pair of our drapes and basically naked except for a pair of women's underwear," store employee Maureen Paquette said.
Greenquist was scheduled to be arraigned in Dover District Court on Wednesday.
