A California family said they’re still shaken up after the scary moments of a home invasion were caught on security camera footage.
Schendelle Bohulano took to Facebook to share a chilling video of a burglar who was caught roaming through her sister’s home while she and her two small children were asleep on Sunday morning, reports ABC 7 News.
Footage shows a man wearing a red hoodie peeking through the bedroom door to the children’s room where Bohulano’s 4-year-old niece and her 1-year-old brother were sleeping.
Watch the video below:
Their mom was also asleep in the next room while her husband was at work.
Boholano believes the thief saw her brother-in-law leave home before breaking in through the backyard.
The random stranger was first caught by a neighbor’s surveillance video walking by the house several times around 7 a.m. He is then seen moving through the house before he entered the kids’ room upstairs. Boholano told the station:
“I started crying, there’s a random stranger in my nieces and nephew’s rooms.”
“He just came in here like he knew where he was going.”
The burglar was only a few feet away from the baby’s crib. The incident was a real shocker to Boholano, so she warned her friends and family members about the scary ordeal.

Someone broke into my sisters house at 7 in the morning while my 4 year old niece, 1 year old nephew and sister was home. He even had the audacity to look at the kids rooms while they were sleeping. I’m f*ckin shooken … they stole a MacBook laptop, Mac desktop, beats headphones, and my niece’s iPad as far as we know…. we had more cameras in the house but dude turned it off except for a few he missed…
He went inside the home three times during the burglary.

No one was harmed during the break-in, however, the family had computers, headphones, and an iPad taken.
The family told the station they plan on getting a big guard dog and upgrading their security system to protect their home in the future.
Police are trying to identify the burglar through a DNA sample since he left behind a pair of gloves.
