And, in other creepy weird crime news…
How would you feel if you woke up in the middle of the night to find a complete stranger standing at the foot of your bed in the dark just petting your cat?
This is the story coming out of St. Petersburg, Florida where a mother awoke at 3:30 am to find a man in her room standing ominously at the foot of her bed just petting her family’s cat.
ABC 15 reports:
Brittney Cline said she was in a dead sleep when her cat jumped off the bed and woke her up.
“When I opened my eyes I could see the shadow of a man standing at the end of my bed,” Cline said. “He was standing perfectly still, I said ‘hello’ and when I said hello he dropped very slowly down to the ground. And as soon as I saw the shadow move down to the ground I knew somebody was there.”
After lifting a fingerprint off her bedroom door, police were able to catch the perpetrator — Cline’s neighbor across the street, 24-year-old Jasper Fiorenza. After a stake out, cops found Fiorenza attempting to break into other houses in the neighborhood, including Cline’s again on another occasion. He has since been charged with burglary.
While people have made jokes about this story, claiming that it’s just so cute the guy was just petting the cat, Cline doesn’t think it’s all that cute.
“That’s the scariest thing, had my cat not jumped off the bed and woken me up, would’ve I woken up with a man on top of me in the middle of the night?” Cline said. “I hope he goes to prison for a long time.”
