Woman’s naked terror as intruder stands over bed

A YOUNG Warana woman sleeping naked in bed lived her worst nightmare when she woke to find a strange man standing over her yesterday morning.

The 25-year-old, who wished to remain anonymous, shuddered in fear when recalling the horrifying tale just hours after it had occurred.

The woman said she had only just gone to sleep about midnight when she was woken by the rustling of a plastic bag in her bedroom.

She rolled over and looked up to see a man of solid build standing over her.

"He was over me and coming towards me," she said.

"I just yelled and asked 'who's there?' He must have freaked because he bolted out the door.

"I've always thought to myself if I was running from someone in the streets I could fight them off, but being asleep in bed there's nothing you can do. I was so vulnerable there."

She said she hated to think what could have happened.

"I was lucky he didn't touch me," she said. "It's perverted."

The woman, who lives with two housemates and two dogs, was the last to go to bed about 11.50pm on Thursday.

She said she had been asleep about 20 minutes before being woken.

She believed the offender gained entry to the house through the back sliding door.

It was usually locked, but on Thursday night the woman forgot to double-check the deadbolt at the top of the door.

She hoped her experience would encourage others to keep their houses locked at night.

"You hear a lot on the Sunshine Coast about people not locking their doors because they don't think anything is going to happen, but look at this," she said.

Nothing was stolen. Police are investigating the break-and-enter.

Keeping them out

Police recommend:

  • Install and use key-operated locks on doors and windows. Don't put keys under door mats.
  • Engrave items of value: deters thieves and makes it easier for police to track stolen items.
