A Florida woman got the scare of her life when she woke up in the middle of the night, to find an intruder in her bedroom.
On Dec. 13, a homeless man broke into Andrea Sofarelli's home by crawling in an unsecured window he had slashed opened, after surveillance footage caught him putting on his gloves, and attempting to jiggle her front door open.
Later identified to be 48-year-old Edwin Figueroa, he made his way to Sofarelli's bedroom, where she was woken up by her dog's barking. Once she came face-to-face with Figueroa, he told her to put a pillow over her head.
“Charlie [her dog] was barking like a maniac. I wake up and I see a silhouette of a man standing at the end of my bed,” Sofarelli told WFLA-TV.
"Half asleep, half awake thinking oh God. And then he’s telling me to put a pillow over my head and it was my gut instinct that said, you scream at the top of your lungs," Sofarelli continued.
Thankfully, Sofarelli said, her dog would come to her rescue.
