I was 10 at the time. We had just moved to a small house in a small neighborhood. It was a Two story House my parents slept on the second floor and I slept on the first. Anyway my bedroom had a window.  
It was a pretty Big window at the time it  had no shade,luckily not a lot of people were ever out in the neighborhood so I didn't see this as a problem yet. One night I remember it like it was yesterday it was so scary for me. I remember sleeping. 
It must have been around 3:00 a.m. I woke up to the sound of taping and I looked at the window a man was staring into my room He was bald and had on a plaid jacket. 
He had his hands cupped looking for something I froze in fear. I wanted to scream to my parents but I feared he would see me. I slowly counted to three. I planned to drop quickly on too the floor and hide under the bed. When I got to "Three" I quickly dropped to the floor and rolled under my bed just in time too as I looked at the window he taken the screen down and forced the window open. Both hands grabbed my desk as he pulled himself into my room. 
I saw flashing lights. He must have saw them too, As he stepped back outside I waited a few seconds and came up from under my bed. I ran to the window and locked it.  To this day I have no clue who the man was or what he wanted all I knew was he was dangerous.
