    Andrew Koster, 21, lives in Delaware Circle where investigators found his phone, shoes, and wallet, police said.

    A Delaware woman awoke to find a drunk stranger in her bed early Friday morning, police said.

    Andrew Koster, a 21-year-old student at the University of Delaware, was arrested on charges of trespassing and criminal mischief.

    Around 2 a.m Friday morning, the 36-year-old woman woke up to find Koster lying next to her. 

    While the victim called police, Koster, who appeared intoxicated, wrongly told the woman he lived there, according to Sgt. Gerald J. Bryda, a spokesman with the Newark Police Department.

    He eventually fled the home before police arrived.

    Detectives later found a cell phone, shoes and a wallet containing Koster's identification. Police believe Koster mistook the woman’s house in the 300 block of Delaware Circle for his own home on the same block.

    It's not clear if Koster retained an attorney.
