My friend and I were coming home from a friends party late one night it was around 1 or so in the morning. We walked because our friends house was only a couple blocks away. Anyhow Two bright lights suddenly  blinded us. 
I  out my hand up as if I was shielding my eyes. John was doing the same. When a man rolled down his window and asked us “need a ride?” No thanks we told the man. “It’s cold out you look cold need a ride?” The man repeated. “No were good.” I said. “Need a ride?” The man said again. This time John got mad and said to the driver “Look we don’t need a ride. And we won’t take one from you.” With that the man rolled up his window and drove away. We were close to my house when I looked over and that same car was now in the middle of the road parked between us and my house. The man rolled down his window again and said “You live here?” 
“No” I said to the man. The man new I was lying. He got out of his car and went to his trunk and took out a hand gun and some duck tape and rope. “Last time for you live here?” The man asked us again. I really didn’t want to tell him I did because this man was crazy. John said before I could answer “No.” the man laughed and said “ok good I’ve been watching this family now I am going to rob there house blind.” I froze I wanted to call the police but I wanted to warn my family this man was crazy. I looked at John. 
There was nothing we could do he had a gun. The man told us to keep watch or else. When I new the man was inside the house I told John to call the police he did and hung up. We heard a gun shot go off inside. The police came a few minutes later and I told them what happened.  They searched the house and arrested the man. 
He saw his reflection in the mirror and shot it. My parents came downstairs and the police told them what happened. It was lucky they didn’t go down stairs a few minutes earlier. My dad usually wakes up and goes downstairs in the middle of the night tonight he didn’t. 
The man had just gotten out of prison for committing a felony and now he has a Home invasion to his record.
