NORFOLK, Va. — A Virginia woman was startled to see a man stroll into her bedroom on Monday afternoon.
Tamara Heys, of Norfolk, said she was home sick when the man entered her home, WTKR reported. Heys admitted the front door was unlocked but was unprepared to see a stranger wearing military fatigues standing at the foot of her bed.
Heys, who was in bed and using her laptop while her dog rested on the covers, could only say, “Who are you?” according to her surveillance camera footage.
“I all of a sudden just heard something and looked up, and there was a strange man standing at the bottom of my bed,” Heys told the television station.
Heys’ home security camera shows the man casually walking into her home and making a right turn down a hallway, WTKR reported.
Right into her bedroom.
“I asked him, you know, what he was doing in my house, and he told me that someone told him that the door would be open and he could come in,” Heys told WTKR.
When Heys yelled at the man to leave the house, he turned and just as casually exited the premises.
“I would think that my reaction and most people’s would be, ‘Oh my gosh, you know, I’m so sorry,” Heys told WTKR. “You know, this is a complete mistake,’ but he didn’t do that; he just turned around and didn’t say anything else.”
Heys was not hurt.
She said security cameras and lights were installed at her home after her husband’s car was broken into three different times. Heys just did not expect someone simply walking into her home during the day.
“I would have never thought something like this would happen, period, let alone at 1 o’clock in the afternoon on a Monday,” Heys told WTKR.
