Burglar Trapped by Ghost

A Malaysian burglar broke into  a house and was still there when the owners returned, three days later.  They found him hungry, dehydrated and claiming that each time he tried to leave, a "supernatural being" pushed him to the floor.

Click above for a link to Malaysia's Star.  Then click here for the AP version, which is one of the most astonishingly poor pieces of journalism we have ever seen.  It mentions the paper it is stealing the story from, and the name of a police official, but neglects to name either the burglar or the country in which he burgled, nor any other detail of the incident, thus leaving most readers to assume a complete hoax.  Which may yet be the case.
