KATY, Texas — A burglar was caught on camera watching a toddler sleep after he broke into a Texas home on April 5.

The burglar slipped into the family’s home through an unlocked first-story window, according to KHOU.

He appeared to be aware that surveillance cameras were recording his every move, but kept moving through the house.

The footage shows the stranger walking in and out of the bedroom of a 2-year-old boy, and then the intruder hovers over the boy’s crib and points a flashlight toward the sleeping child.

The parents were in their bedroom on the first floor and slept through everything.

The burglar eventually left with only a laptop and burglarized another home in the neighborhood.

Neighbors suspect this same intruder is responsible for a string of other burglaries in the community.
