EDMOND, Okla. -- It was a terrifying call for help; a stranger was caught creeping around inside the Alpha Delta Pi Sorority at UCO.

"One of the girls woke up around 2 a.m. with a man sitting at the end of her bed," said Jenny Wagnon, with the Edmond Police Department.

When police arrived, they found 41-year-old Randall Scott Ashton on the balcony.

He was arrested, and that's when authorities made another unusual discovery.

He'd apparently been sifting through the girl's laundry.

"So at some point, he had taken her underwear and put them on and then he wore them into jail," Wagnon said.

Members of Alpha Delta Pi are understandably still shaken. You could hear their sobs on the 911 call for help.

Investigators believe Ashton got into the house through an unlocked window.

Word is already circulating around the UCO campus.

"That would freak me out. that's scary.. yeah, they should get some high-tech security in there," said Lauren McCutchan, a UCO student.

And police say this was not his first stop.

Just hours earlier, police received reports of a strange man dropping his pants inside the Crest Foods in Edmond.

"We looked through the video and he is in fact the suspect from the Crest indecent exposure," Wagnon said.

Police booked Randall Ashton into jail on a charge of first-degree burglary for those stolen panties, and one count of indecent exposure.
