In 1987 in Charleston South Carolina, a girl was asleep in her bedroom at her house. She had left the window open on a hot night. Her mom said it would be ok. It was around 2:30 in the morning she was asleep when she heard a faint cough coming from her left. She opened her eyes as panic took over as she saw in the dark shadows of her room a man was by her bed side staring down at her. 

She wanted to scream but was afraid her parents wouldn't get to her in time. She pretended to go back to bed. A few minutes passes and she felt her covers and the bed start to shake. She realized the man had gotten into her bed with her. 

She immediately got out of the bed and ran to the door and ran as fast as she could to her parents bedroom to tell them what had happened. The parents were concerned and called the police who came and looked around the house. After a half hour they came up from the basement with a man in cuffs who was smiling at the girl and said "Your pretty." He was then taken to the local jail.
