Earlington Residents Claim Home Intruder Touching Daughters' Feet During Night

earlington city hall 300EARLINGTON, Ky. (8/14/13) - Several residents in Earlington are feeling unsettled after reporting an intruder walking into their houses and touching their daughters' feet.

A resident of Robinson Street said Wednesday that she had reported to Hopkins Central Dispatch that a man wearing a ski mask had come into her home at approximately 4 a.m. Monday.
 
The woman, who is remaining anonymous to protect her identity, said her daughter awoke her saying that a man wearing a ski mask had removed the cover from her feet and caressed them.
 
"She pretended to be still asleep because she was afraid, and he left," said the Robinson Street resident. "She is still afraid and she's not a fearful type girl."
 
The resident said both she and her husband were asleep at the time of the incident until awakened by their daughter. The couple admits to having left their door unlocked, which allowed the intruder to gain access to their home.
 
The daughter was sleeping in the living room near a window unit air conditioner because the house's central air unit was broken, said the resident.
 
"My daughter said he was using the flashlight on his cell phone," she said.
 
A resident of Westside Avenue, who also requested to be unidentified, said a male intruder also walked into her home Tuesday between the hours of 3 to 4 a.m. She said her daughter said she saw the man walk through the house and through her room. And that her daughter and her friend had left the door unlocked when they came in late.
 
"I fault them for leaving the door unlocked," said the Westside Avenue resident. "But now I'm double checking the doors and the windows each night. I can't sleep well because of this. I'd also like for someone to tell me what's within my rights to protect myself."
 
Both the Robinson Street and Westside Avenue residents said they began assimilating their stories after a mutual acquaintance told them of a man entering her daughter's bedroom through a screened window.
 
The male resident of the Robinson Street home said when he alerted several neighbors to the events and urging them to be cautious, six similar stories were shared with him.
 
"I would like someone to call me or come here about this," said the Robinson Street male. "After we reported it, we've not heard from anybody with the law."
 
He said he is setting his alarm for 2:30 a.m. daily to get up and double check windows and doors.
 
"In this area, you could sleep with your windows up in this kind of weather but you can't now," he said.
 
Calls to Earlington Police Chief Chris Proctor were unsuccessful Wednesday.
