Terrified Woman Hides on Roof from Intruder (PHOTOS)

What happened to this woman on Wednesday morning in Venice Beach, California, is every homeowner’s worst nightmare. Like a scene out of a suspenseful thriller, she rushed to her rooftop after hearing someone break into the vacant unit next door — only to discover that she was being followed by the suspect.

In the photos and videos above, you can see how terrified she is that he will get to her. She is half-naked and covering her mouth as to not make a sound.

Thankfully, police arrived at the scene with their guns drawn and were able to detain the transient without altercation.
