Student documents hour-long battle to evict mystery gatecrasher from his bed



A STUDENT filmed his hour-long battle to eject a mystery gatecrasher from his bed after forgetting to lock his room.

Kyle Mannon tried to coax the slumbering student from under his duvet before pulling him on to the floor.

The stranger climbed straight back in so Kyle, 19, eventually doused him with water.

Things then got very weird as Kyle, from Edinburgh, and the soaked interloper locked in a nervous embrace.

Even after violence had been avoided, it took the intervention of staff from St Andrews University, and a further 20 minutes, to give Kyle back his bed.

He posted the bizarre footage as a warning to other students to always lock their rooms.

Kyle, a second year Computer Science and Psychology student, is shown pulling his duvet off the bearded stranger, thought to be in his late teens or early twenties, saying, “Okay, I don’t really know what’s going on here.”

The stranger refused to give up Kyle’s bed – despite numerous effort

He then tries to wake him up and politely says “Excuse me, excuse me” before pulling him on to the floor.

But the boy just gathers up the duvet again and hops back into bed – still wearing his shirt and trousers.

Bemused Kyle can then be heard saying: “He’s still trying to get into bed. This is my bed. I’ll just pull him out again. This one can’t be asleep.”

The boy then pipes up, saying “What the f**k is wrong with you? Get your f**king hands off me” before repeating “What the f**k is wrong with you man?” in an American accent.

The pair then found themselves in an intense embrace with each other.

The pair then continue to argue before Kyle goes to his kitchen and gets a glass of water to throw into his trespassers face to “wake him up”.

But the gesture does not go down well as the man flips and jumps out of bed before the footage captures the boys having an intense stand-off.

The man is shown glaring at Kyle, putting his face so close to his that they are actually touching.

During this, he is clutching onto the glass which Kyle used to thrown the water from.

Kyle, and a uni warden, took in total just under a hour to remove him.

Kyle spent another five minutes trying to persuade the man to leave before asking university wardens to help. Even then, it took the warden another 20 minutes to make him leave.

Kyle said today that the man had gatecrashed a party at his student accommodation and kept passing out on the kitchen floor.

He said: “I just kind of left him here and we all moved to the common room but eventually when I came back and returned to my room, he was back but in my bed.

“I wouldn’t have been mad if he just got out and left when I said but I tried so many time so I threw the water at him.

“It all got a bit strange then.

“My friends all found the whole thing funny but it was definitely the strangest experience I’ve had here.”
