A RING doorbell has captured the terrifying moment a crazed stranger threatened to “rape and kill” a woman as she hid in her home.
The shocking footage, shared by the victim on social media, shows a bearded man menacingly stood on the porch in Las Vegas and knocking on the door while staring through the glass.
He repeatedly asks: “Are you sure? Are you positive? I just rang your doorbell because I have a couple of questions for you.”
The female occupant of the downtown property was home alone, “hiding where this guy couldn’t see me and not saying a word,” as she quietly called 911.
Her husband remotely joined the Ring doorbell and confronted the tattooed trespasser, asking, “Who are you?” as he headed back down the path.
The stranger, carrying a plastic bag and another unknown object, returns to speak to the device and says: “Hey I just had a couple questions. Can you hear me?
He then calmly tells the camera: “What I’m looking for is for the girl that’s in the house to come out here because I’m going to rape her and kill her. Could you have her open the door?
‘I HAVE A KNIFE AND A GUN’
“I’m going to rape and kill the girl that’s on the other side of this door, if she lets me in. I want to rape her and kill her, I have a knife and a gun.”
He delivers his horrifying threats with a deadpan facial expression before knocking on the door once more.
The chilling clip then shows him cooly walk back down the path as he again repeats to himself, “Are you sure?”
A person who recognized the man from the disturbing doorbell footage posted on Facebook, which has been shared over 91,000 times, identified him to police, Fox5News reported.
The suspect is being held at the Clark County Detention Centre on charges of aggravated stalking and coercion, according to reports.
The woman who shared the video wrote in a post: “The power of community using social media is strong and this proves so! Thank you everyone! I’m just glad he’s off the streets, and can’t harm anyone else.”
She went on to warn others to “Lock your doors friends!!” after the frightening incident.
