A CARPENTER was charged on Thursday with one count of criminal trespass after he was found hiding under a woman's bed on Taveuni.

A report was lodged at the Taveuni Police Station by the 31-year-old woman who said the accused, 33, was found hiding under her bed without her consent.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the accused claimed he was trying to play a practical joke on another family member by hiding under the bed and scaring him when he entered the bedroom.

Ms Naisoro said the incident happened on Tuesday this week about 10.30am

"However, in her statement the victim said she had seen the accused hiding under the bed without her consent," she said.

"The accused has been bailed to appear in the Taveuni Magistrates Court on May 20."
