A young woman from Sauchie, Scotland, saw live how a man entered her home and laid in the bed with her one-year-old son. Thanks to a security camera installed in the room, the woman was able to observe the intruder’s actions and, although she publicly reported the incident to the authorities, she did not receive the expected response.
Caitlin Sullivan, 22, was at a friend’s house when the camera alarm went off in her bedroom. When he saw the images, he was horrified, because a man he didn’t know walked into his house and covered himself with his blankets to sleep.
The young woman assured that, after the incident, she made a radical decision not to stay at home. “I really don’t want to go back to that house,” he said, according to the Daily Mail. “If he had been there, he would have crawled into my bed and laid next to me.”
A day later, Sullivan received a message on Facebook from a stranger apologizing for breaking into her home. “To give you my sincere apologies, I’m not well. “Thank you for letting me hang my head for three hours, I hope no harm happened,” the text reads.
“I called the police and they just told me to block it,” said the angry mother. “Who’s to say he won’t come back? “He wasn’t punished for it so he could do it again.”
The aforementioned media showed that a group of police arrived at the place after the complaint of the young woman and removed the man who was still resting. Although he was transferred to a unit, he was not arrested because “no crime was established.”
How to avoid intrusions at home?
To prevent intruders from entering your home, secure doors and windows with strong locks, use security systems such as alarms and cameras, keep outdoor lighting well-lit, consider smart locks and security gates.
On the other hand, simulate work when you are not at home, take care of your presence on social networks, maintain good relations with your neighbors and keep your property tidy and visible. Home security is an ongoing endeavor that requires attention to detail and preventative measures.
