I was awoken by my dog barking at about 3:30 in the morning. I flicked on the light to see what was up, and was greeted by the unexpected sight of a man standing there. I was disoriented and confused, I thought it was my roommate standing there at first, until he talked to me, saying something about Aaron telling him to come by. I said I didn't know Aaron and he left my room.
I laid there for a sec, gathering my thoughts and trying to figure out wtf was going on and once I was a bit more awake I realized shit was odd and that was not my roommate and I mobilized, throwing on pyjama pants and grabbing the baseball bat I keep by my bed which I never thought I would actually have reason to use.
I went out of my room brandishing said bat, and the guy was in my living room, putting his shoes back on again. Yes, he took his shoes off. He again asked me if I knew Aaron and that Aaron had told him to come to my place, and I said no and that he needed to get out immediately. Basically chased him out with the bat, called police a few minutes later.
VPD came to my house, and while they were talking to me they got another call that someone was reporting a stranger in their home in the area, so they had to rush off. I got a call a while later saying that he had been caught and they needed my statement. Two different officers came by my place to pick up my statement about half hour later, and they told me he was a sex offender and most likely looking for women.
Moral of the story - lock your front door. Ladies, especially you. This could have turned out a lot worse for someone who wasn't 6'2 220lbs.
