Our neighbor waved the police over, and talked to them. They told him the car had been reported stolen a few months back.
Sometime during November, my parents were out in the evening doing yard work. He stopped in front of our yard, and was asking my parents where I was. He said he “missed our time together, and felt neglected.” My parents got really upset and chased him away.
A few days later, I was up late at night playing FFXI on the Xbox 360 in the den. The den was on the bottom floor. I use to keep all the blinds open with the lights off in the room. I liked looking at the night sky. People could probably see me through the window, since it was facing the street.
So there I was, illuminated by the TV, all cuddled up in my big arm chair having a late night game session(probably about 2AM), and I see the familiar red minivan slowly coming down the road. I froze. It parked a few feet up the road from my property, in between our house and the house next door.
There was a small driveway, that led to no where, going in between our land. He stopped his car, turned it off, then came out. I watched in horror as he walked closer to our house. I was terrified. I pushed myself as far back into the chair as I could, hoping he wouldn’t see me. I felt like screaming, but my parents were upstairs, and both were sound sleepers.
He paced back and forth in front of our house, sort of staring. He was looking into the den. Now, this is the extremely strange part. He just stopped in place, then laid down on the side of the road in front of our house. He just laid there for a good hour. I was frozen with fear the entire time.
After about an hour, he got up, then strolled back to his car, and left. I ran up stairs crying and told my parents. They called the police again, but, he was gone by the time they got to us.
We were all frustrated. The police, despite having his license plate, couldn’t do anything, and this guy was coming around, harassing and terrifying us and our neighbors. This went on till about March.
About a month passed without seeing him. And that is when we got the news. Our neighbor, who was good friends with someone that lived down a dead end side road up a bit further, had been on a walk to his friends house. He spotted the red minivan off in a drive way of a house that had just been put up for sale. (the people were moved out).
He got filled with anger when seeing it, and ran over. When he got closer, he noticed blood on the passenger side window. He went to the closest house and used their phone to call 911. He went back over to the car to check it out.(he was pretty ballsy. He was sort of the neighborhood protector.)
The car doors were unlocked. He looked in the window to see the small dogs body, a wallet, which had an ID in it, and a bloody wrench wedged between the two seats.
He left and waited for the police to arrive. Our neighbor stayed in contact with the police. Apparently, the guy had left in a hurry, leaving his ID behind. Turns out he had just been released from prison not too long ago for offenses towards minors. We didn’t get any details though.
I felt so horrible for the dog. I really hope he never got his hands on another animal again. :(
I sometimes worry that he went on to harass other people the same way he harassed us.
