MarineWifeAndMommy --- 8 years ago -

So last night my hub had duty so I was home alone with my son. I always have my blinds open during the day and so when I left to bring my husband dinner I forgot to close them. It was dark when I got home.

Well, I'm sitting on my couch watching my son play when my dog starts barking at the window. I tried to shush her but she wouldn't. I couldn't see out the window since all the lights were on and it was dark outside. There was that glare n the window.

My dog Is still barking at the window so I get up to shut the blinds and when I get up to the window there Is a man standing there looking in!!!!right up against the window! He didn't turn and run either. Stood there with a blank look and then slowly he turned and walked away. Slowly! Like he didn't care that I saw him.

I called my husband who rushed home. Found footprints up by our front window as well as our side window and leading into our back patio. I wouldn't stay by myself since my husband had to go back to work so I got a room.

Disturbing to know I was being stared at tho :-/

OMG! Thats so freakish. Where do you live? I had a similiar incident like that when I lived in Jacksonville, we found an entire pile of cig butts infront of a window by the bushes.

How uncomfortable that someone took the security of being in your home away from you :( 

kElJoY --- 8 years ago -

Sounds like Lurking Larry was on the 801 prowl again to me. 

Jane Doe --- 8 years ago -

Did you file a police report or anything? It will put PD or PMO on alert if there is a creeper in the neighborhood. 

MarineWifeAndMommy --- 8 years ago -

Joe Davis 801. We contacted pmo and they were driving around but we are around back so they can't really see anything from the parking lot. 

IWearHisRank --- 8 years ago -

SCARY!!!! Sad thing is that there are a lot of men that do that in 29! I have met several people that have had the same experience as you! 

Erin --- 8 years ago -

I would have walked outside with my dog and asked him what the he!! he thought he was doing.

Glad you are ok and sorry you had such a scare. 

oTBN38o --- 8 years ago -

oh poop. 

MarineWifeAndMommy --- 8 years ago -

Oh no I dnt have a big dog. Just a tiny rat dog. And I was scared! Even scarier that after I saw him he walked around to my other window and back patio :-/ 

IWearHisRank --- 8 years ago -

I Wear His Rank-expirience

fix it FIX IT before KELJOY sees it!!


What are you talking about? LOL ;) 

MrsH --- 8 years ago -

I would have walked outside with my dog and asked him what the he!! he thought he was doing.

Word...except I would have had a gun in my hand. Obviously that guy had no shame or fear over peeping in someone's windows. 

oTBN38o --- 8 years ago -

What are you talking about? LOL ;)

whhhatTTT? 

IWearHisRank --- 8 years ago -

What are you talking about? LOL ;)

whhhatTTT?


Ahhh, young grasshopper. LOL 

MarineWifeAndMommy --- 8 years ago -

I wish I were as brave as u guys lol. But I wouldn't have unlocked my door and risked my son getting hurt. I'm very small so I doubt I'd do much damage. 

MarineWifeAndMommy --- 8 years ago -

I need go learn how to shoot the shotgun we have but its to big for me. I can't even hold it right. I need a smaller version hahaha 

IWearHisRank --- 8 years ago -

I need go learn how to shoot the shotgun

Just make sure, he steps INSIDE your house before you fire, otherwise it's murder. If he's inside its trespassing. I love California. 

MarineWifeAndMommy --- 8 years ago -

Yah I knew that :-) I just don't know if I'd actually be able to shoot. I know I would if my son was in danger but if I hesitate that's all it'd take 

Jane Doe --- 8 years ago -

You did the right thing calling someone. As much as people think they should confront the man that is a bit foolish for a person home alone. If you have a weapon in the home why do you not have more confidence in it's protection and use?
I find that foolish as well JMO.

Control what you can and that is protecting your son and calling the police/ your husband.
I had a similar experience in 801 except mine banged on my window and door. I locked myself in my sons room with our shotgun (he was asleep). and called my husband and pmo. They were there in less than a min and caught the guy.
Turns out he had priors and a warrant out for his arrest. He also had a knife in him so he obviously had the intention of inflicting harm. 

Wildfire --- 8 years ago -

Sounds like Lurking Larry was on the 801 prowl again to me.

First thing I thought of!

Really though, I'm glad you and your little one are ok. I can just imagine how scared you were. 

MarineWifeAndMommy --- 8 years ago -

The gun is my husbands. I'm scared of guns which is why he keeps it in a safe locked up. If I had to I'm sure I could shoot it its just a scary thought. 

MarineWifeAndMommy --- 8 years ago -

Who is lurking larry? 

joe --- 8 years ago -

IF people would just NOT do that to other people [look in windows] other people would not be considered a threat that would not do that kind of thing.. That's what bothers me [maybe that is selfish of me, I do not know]..There was a time in the town when that did not ever happen though hard to believe now. A lot of people still feel such things never happen as they are like in a shell.Some do not have the moral sense or such ,why they do[?] 

joe --- 8 years ago -

Conscience being like 'acidified' or burned out or senseless the way he just looks in a lit up house with a regular face ..What I see people do not socialize because of such [so that can upset me].What do ya think about the above sentence ? 

on a need to know basis --- 8 years ago -

Did you file a police report or anything? It will put PD or PMO on alert if there is a creeper in the neighborhood. 


Police don't really do anything about that, just to take a report. I have had a man come in my back yard and look in all mine and my kids windows and they did nothing for me. I had someone come in my house and look through our house without taking anything and still nothing.

I had my car broken into and money stolen , caught the guy in the act chased him to his house in my car.

The police finally came hours later did a line up and picked him out and they said since he didn't have the money on him they couldn't charge him. 

Jane Doe --- 8 years ago -

Sorry you had a bad experience but they DID do something for me.
I would hate for someone to shy away from help just because of one bad experience. 

Lurkin Larry --- 8 years ago -

Who is lurking larry?

Sorry I didn't stop and introduce myself, but I was kinda in a hurry..LOL 

StantheStalker --- 8 years ago -

Sorry I didn't stop and introduce myself, but I was kinda in a hurry..
