So this happened 2 years ago to me and my sisters. Rather than any back story, this starts with the encounter itself. My 12 year old sister was sitting in my room one night on her tablet.
She had the lights off too. I was on a date (i was 20) and my other sister (17) was somewhere else in the house.
My 12 yo sister looked up and all of a sudden saw what looked like a figure in the window looking in. It wasn't moving so she said it was hard to see if it was a shadow or a person.
After about 90 seconds of staring, the figure moved and my sister saw it was a person. She said she froze and freaked out for a second.
She stared at her tablet for a second and, because she's a smart effing girl, she turned on some music and pretended to get a call on her phone.
Then she used that as a way to slowly walk out of the room.
She RAN to my parents and told my dad, who grabbed his gun and opened the back door.
He cocked the gun loudly and then suddenly a huge man ran from the side of our house, through the yard, and over our fence.
Little did he know that the fence was the edge of a small cliff that was about 12 feet to the rocky ground. The guy broke hus leg and laid there until the cops came.
The cops found a chair and a mini ladder that had been moved from our garage to underneath tje window in my sisters/my shower. Creepy af.
They also found a cut screen window, just a small slit on the side.
The story is that the guy's son went to my other 17 yo sister's school and had a crush on her. The dad found out where she lived and started stalking all three of us.
He had broken into a girl's room down the street a few weeks before but got away before they could catch him. He confessed to this.
I moved to college a little bit later and truly don't know what happened to him in the end. But he was looking in MY window that night he got caught, so I only can imagine what he saw.....
