So I live in a relatively small town that happens to have two universities in it, one of which I am attending. Anyways, last year I am out of the house with one of my roommates while the other one (a girl) is at home studying/sleeping. Anyways, we get a call at 11ish pm to come home immediately. What had happened was apparently she had woken up to go get some milk or w/e from the fridge when she looked over and saw a dude attempting to climb into the window. At the time we lived in an older house with those lift up wooden windows and some of them (unfortunately many of them) didn't have screens/ the screens had a lot of holes in them so they were kinda useless. Anyways, luckily this one was pretty shitty and even with two people we could only open it less than 6 inches. As my roommate told me, the only reason she saw the guy, as all the lights in the house were off, was from the refrigerator light as she opened it. She stopped dead in her tracks and they exchanged looks as he slowly backed away slowly whilst maintaing eye contact. She immediately ran upstairs, barricaded herself in my room and called me. I ended up running home ASAP whilst calling up several friends and the police. As soon as I get home it is a cluster of at least 6 cars (including two cops) rolling in front of our house all at once. We didn't see they guy anywhere. However the next week this guy gets caught in our town breaking into a college girls house when she is home alone and sexually assaulting her. Not rape, but besides the point. But apparently she wasn't the first victim and my roommate was almost one of his victims as well. Thanks to a very shitty window she was saved.
