    A squabble over a public's school's toilet paper supply has broken out in a Spanish town, prompting local officials to step in.

    The government-run Rafael Garcia Valino primary school in Yepes, a town 30 miles south of Madrid, recently sent out a list of supplies students need for class this year. Among the pens, notebooks and erasers was an unexpected item: six rolls of toilet paper.

    One parent, Carmen Contreras, complained on her Facebook page that the requirement was "totally surreal." She said the school told her it didn't have enough money for toilet paper.

    The ABC newspaper says Yepes town hall has offered to resolve the shortage by supplying rolls for the whole school.

    Florida deputies have arrested a 24-year-old Naples man who allegedly hid under the bed of his 11-year-old neighbor and left her a sexually explicit note.

    Authorities took David Hanggigoble into custody for stalking after the girl and her mother explained how Hanggigoble's actions had escalated during recent days.

    The victim said she was in the bathroom getting ready for school. When she came out, she saw Hanggigoble hiding under the bed. She ran from her room and called her mother. Her mother then contacted the sheriff's office and came home.
