She woke up and found a man standing near her bed. The woman told WSB that her 4-year-old son was in the room with her.

“I was still in bed and my 4-year-old son was sleeping with me when I looked to my side, and this man was standing next to my bed and he was touching himself watching me sleep,” the victim said. “When I saw, I screamed and my son woke up, and the only thing I could think about was getting the person out of there. And I put myself between him and my child and I just pushed him out; picked up a chair and pushed toward him and, you know, I was trying to keep him away.”
