A Texas woman has shared chilling security footage of a hooded man looking into her home. She hopes that others will “listen to your instincts.”
The short video shows a man staring into a window of Noel Bracy’s San Antonio home before scurrying off into the darkness.
“Ladies—please listen to your instincts, even if others do not listen to you! After weeks of thinking that I was crazy … I caught the man that has been watching me from outside my window on camera,” she wrote on Facebook.
“He came back and stole my camera, but I had the footage via an app,” she wrote.
Bracy told concerned followers that the incidents had been happening over a span of several weeks.
“I opened my blinds right here, and I was face to face with him but I couldn’t see his features or anything,” she told KENS5. “That’s why we decided to get the camera.”
She said she also heard noises outside multiple times.
“I’ve been hearing moaning outside of my window, mostly in the morning when I’m getting ready for work, and sometimes at night,” she said.
“This guy needs to get caught!” she added on Facebook. Speaking to News4, she said: “I don’t feel safe. I don’t feel safe for my 6-year-old daughter, who also has an outside facing window. It’s really sad because I don’t feel safe in my own home. I don’t think any woman should have to go through that.”
A number of people praised Bracy for getting a camera and capturing evidence of the criminal.
“THANK YOU for sharing this,” wrote Yana Lee on Facebook. “A few weeks ago I saw someone looking into my window and I’ve been on edge ever since. I’m going to try setting up a camera as well. So glad the news picked up your story!”
An officer with the San Antonio Police Department told KENS5 that there have been a number of similar stories from people living in the area, and that police are investigating. Anyone with information is urged to call the police.
