CARROLL, Iowa (AP) >> Carrie Sapp teased her husband, Brad, about being afraid of ghosts when he said he heard someone whisper “get out of here” while he was sorting cans at his Iowa recycling business.

It was her turn eight hours later, though now it was a man yelling for help from the Carroll Redemption Center’s chimney.

Carrie Sapp told the Daily Times Herald on Wednesday (http://bit.ly/1XBTQEI ) that the man explained, “I was playing hide-and-seek with my cousin. … Don’t call the cops!”

But they were called, as were firefighters, who eventually hammered a hole in the chimney before getting 29-year-old Jordan Kajewski out of it.

He was naked and covered in soot, though he had his clothes with him.

Kajewski was charged with trespassing. Court records don’t list an attorney for him.
