She lives on a quiet street in a quiet part of town, but Tiffany Kinkennon is having trouble falling asleep.
"I slept about an hour today, but you know, the minute a dog barks I'm up," Tiffany said.
Her dogs woke her up early Sunday morning, growling at a stranger in her room.
"It's almost one of those fears that scares you stiff, you don't know what to do," said Kinkennon Sunday afternoon.
The dogs likely scared away a man who could be walking these streets at night, breaking into homes like the one Tiffany lives in with her dad.
Homes residents here think are secure.
“You like to think you don't have to lock yourself down every night, but apparently that's what you have to do," said Tiffany’s dad, Sam.
"It's scary to know he could be anybody. He could be my next door neighbor for all I know,” Tiffany added.
She says now she'll have to look over her shoulder in a neighborhood she thought was safe.
Sam plans to make security a top priority, especially while the man who crept into his daughter's room is still somewhere out there.
"We'll be ready for him when he comes back."
Police are increasing their patrols of the area, hoping to catch him before he breaks in again.
The suspect description in this incident was very similar to one in a sexual assault from last week.
He’s described as Hispanic, 5 foot 5, wearing all black.
