Just three weeks ago, Lindsey McKay was asleep in her bedroom when she says a tall light complected male was standing over her while she slept.
It happened around 5:30 in the morning near Utah Street and Pennsylvania Avenue in Fairfield.
The prowler told McKay he came through the front door and must have gone to the wrong home.
“Later on when I called the police, I realized that the screen had been popped out of the windows and he climbed over my bed,” said McKay,
McKay said the man left out of the front door quietly.
“He was not aggressive or threatening. He backed off,” said McKay.
When Fairfield Police came, McKay claims they never took fingerprints. They did, however, take them weeks later when the suspect showed up at a neighbor of McKay’s home.
“I felt my blanket being pulled back and I thought it was my daughter. All I saw was this scary face I knew it was a man,” said the victim who chose not to reveal her identity.
A prowler with a similar description came through the front window and stood just feet away from the victim as she slept on the couch.
“He looked more scared than I did. I just started screaming bloody murder hoping my mom would wake up,” said the victim. “He took off running. He tried to get out of the house but the door knob was stuck.”
Neither woman had seen the man before, but said they would not be surprised if he lived near their neighborhood.
“It’s a very bad neighborhood unfortunately,” said the victim.
While the suspect may have walled away without physically hurting anyone, both women wonder if his bold acts will escalate.
