Imagine being asleep in your own home and you wake up to find a stranger standing over you! That is possibly almost every woman's worst fear but for one Bronx, New York teen, it was a reality.
An unidentified 16-year-old girl woke up Monday morning to a complete stranger rubbing her hand on his "genital area".
Via Pix 11:
"Police believe the man entered through the fire escape and was attempting to rob the home when he spotted the sleeping girl.
He then grabbed her hand and placed it over his genital area, above his clothing, police said.
When the girl woke up, and broke free of his grasp, police said the man fled. Police do not believe he stole any items.
The man sought is believed to be 20 to 30 years old, and was last seen wearing a black jacket, white T-shirt, red sweatpants and black sneakers."
This is probably one of the scariest things we can imagine but we thank God nothing else happened to her! From here on out, we want to encourage EVERYONE to make sure their doors and windows are locked at night!
