Beyond Creepy

Filed under: Crime — by teofilo @ 5:59 pm

From a crime alert e-mail I just received, describing two incidents this past week:

An unknown subject knocked on a resident’s door, once the resident opened the door, several masked intruders forced their way into the apartment and demanded money and marijuana. One of the intruders was armed with what appeared to be a rifle or shotgun. The resident reportedly surrendered money and marijuana to the intruders, who then fled.

A female resident reported that she was awakened by a subject who reportedly was removing her bedroom covers from her. The subject reportedly fled the room when the resident was awakened. The resident fell back asleep. A few minutes later, the female resident was again awakened, by the same subject turning a light on in her room. The intruder again fled when the resident was awakened this second time. The victim described the intruder as an Asian male, in his 20s, wearing a light colored shirt and blue jeans.

That first one happened literally around the corner from where I live.



  1. I’m surprised the woman was able to fall back asleep. I think I’d be hard pressed to sleep again for several days.

  2. I bet she has trouble sleeping now.

  3. Hope she has help and support around her.

  4. Yeah. That’s some seriously freaky shit to experience.

  5. Why didn’t she lock her door? Or, I guess, probably her door was locked and creepenstein had a key.

    I can only assume she fell back asleep because she was tired and disoriented. *Shudder* Scary.

    First guy’s lucky he had marijuana to give the shotgun-toting psychos.

    Yeah, that made me think they probably knew him or had some close connection. Still: sucky and scary.

  7. Yeah, I think it’s pretty likely in both of these cases that the perpetrators knew the victims (although the victims may well have not recognized them). I don’t think that changes the creepiness.
