'My mouth dropped': US man comes home to find stranger in his wife's clothes

A US man was astonished to come home and find a stranger wearing his wife's clothes.

Kent Foster returned to his house in Union, South Carolina on Wednesday (local time). When he tried to open his front door he found an object had been shoved against it from the inside.

As he pushed it open, he heard voices coming from inside the house and called 911.

When police arrived on the scene they found a woman and two children in Mr Foster's house. The woman, who has been identified as Savannah Rhinehart, told officers she lived there.

"When she opens the door, the first thing she says is, 'Can I help you?'" Mr Foster told FOX Carolina. "Yeah, the first thing you can do is leave my house."

He said his normally clean home had been ransacked, with furniture moved around, dog urine on the floor and evidence that someone had been smoking inside.

In an even more disturbing twist, Mr Foster claims Rhinehart was wearing his wife's clothes.

"My mouth drops," he told FOX Carolina. "She has all of [my wife's] clothes. Bedroom shoes, shirt, what she owned."

The two children were reportedly also wearing clothes that belonged to other members of his family.

Police later learned the intruders had used the family's bathtub and eaten their food. It's unclear how they broke into the house.

Officers took Rhinehart to the local hospital and the children were placed in emergency protective custody.

Rhinehart was later charged with child neglect, burglary, and petit larceny.
