Burglar Hides In 7-Year-Old Girl’s Closet Overnight, Leaves Porn Video Behind

Police in Oregon are searching for a burglar who left a pornographic video in the bedroom of a 7-year-girl.

The suspect broke into the Salem home on Monday and hid in the girl’s closet until Tuesday morning. The child woke up as the suspect escaped through a window.

The girl alerted her mother at 1:30 a.m. Tuesday that a stranger had been in her room.

She said someone stepped on her bed before jumping out of her window.

A photograph was left in the closet and a pornographic film was in her DVD player. The photo appears to be of a woman with a young boy sitting on her lap.

"To know that a man was in my home when I got here. To know he heard me go in there to tell my daughter 'Good night, I love you, I'll see you in the morning.' Very scary," the girl’s mother, who was not indentified, told KPTV.

She said she is still “very shaken up.”

No arrests have been made.

Authorities say a similar incident occurred about an hour later at a home three miles away.

A woman said she woke up after she felt a man kneeling on her bed. She said the assailant was reaching for her. When she screamed, he fled.
