A man trying to kick in her front door. He fails and tries again. Then walks off screen to break a window and enter the home.
"The first two nights I was there, I was scared to death. I thought he was going to be coming back," she said.

"Four, six houses here, three houses there, and it's just one after another within a two week period," she said.
