VENICE, Calif. — A woman’s daring escape from a home intruder, in which she bailed out of a second-story window and onto her roof, was caught in a terrifying photo.
According to KTLA, Melora Rivera was forced to crawl out of a window Wednesday morning, wearing only a flannel shirt, after someone broke into her home.
Neighbors say the intruder was a known homeless man in the area.
The homeless man followed Rivera after she crawled through a window and onto the rooftop. She then used her cellphone to call 911.
The intruder was identified as 29-year-old Christian Hicks.
He was arrested and is being held on a $50,000 bail.
