A Chicago couple, Jack Mackercher and Jordan Buranskas, were shocked after they say home surveillance footage captured a stranger standing on their staircase as they slept on a couch below on Monday. The couple didn’t know there was an intruder in their home until the next day when Buranskas noticed that her purse was missing. She told her boyfriend that she was sure she brought the purse home but he said she left it at the restaurant they ate at the previous day. In order to prove who was wrong or right, they decided to view the surveillance footage from the previous day.
They told WLS-TV:
“We actually got into a little bit of an argument about it. He thought I left it at the restaurant the night before,” she said.
What they found instead turned their blood cold. Around 3:30 a.m., while they were both passed out in Mackercher’s living room asleep, a hooded man appeared out of their upstairs bedroom.
The man then stood on the ledge and proceeded to stare down at them for several minutes and even watched the show that was playing on TV for several minutes. He was at the top of the stairs for about 12 to 15 minutes.
“We were both like, ‘What the hell, is this real?’ “It was really quite creepy, especially when you see that happen in your house.”
“He stood there for about five minutes the first time then walked away, then came back and hovered over us again for another seven ten minutes,” Buranskas told WLS-TV.
The intruder was so quiet and slow-moving that his presence didn’t even tip off Mackercher’s two dogs, they said.
The couple said they believe the man got in through an unlocked door after climbing six flights of stairs on their building’s fire escape. They said he’s been dubbed the “Creeper Ghost” and is suspected in a string of burglaries in the area.
