A 50-year-old Oregon woman has been arrested after her boyfriend allegedly snuck her inside his apartment through a suitcase after she was banned 14 months ago.
Kola J. McGrath was arrested Monday for trespassing after workers at her boyfriend's downtown Portland apartment complex discovered she had been sneaking inside by hiding in a large pink suitcase.
Police were notified this week when a witness saw a man putting a woman in the suitcase, prompting him to call police over a possible kidnapping.

'We heard there may have been a person in there,' apartment clerk Aisea Poulivaati told Oregon Live, 'but it's not like we could have proven that.'
At a height of 5ft, 6in (1.67m) and weighing 96lbs (44kg), Curtis T Lowe, 52, allegedly carried her in and out for the last 14 months after she was banned from the building for breaking a fire extinguisher with her purse.
That incident occurred during an argument between the couple.
'I guess you could call it creative,' Mr Poulivaati said of their scheme to get her inside the building.

After the witness described the suspect to the apartment's staff, they led authorities to Mr Lowe's apartment.
Inside officers found McGrath hiding in a closet.
She was arrested on a single count of trespassing but has since been released.
