Police in northern California have launched a massive manhunt for a ‘bold’ would-be rapist who tried to attack a 13-year-old girl as she was opening her door to return home.
Disturbing home surveillance video shows the man stalking the girl as she walks to her porch before he forces his way into the San Jose property on Tuesday.
Fortunately, the girl fought back and slapped the man in the face causing him to flee, but not before his face had been captured on camera.
The girl then locked herself in a closet and texted her father, ‘Daddy come home now. Some guy tried to rape me.’
Speaking to ABC News, the girl who wishes to remain anonymous, said that she first saw the man approaching her as she was thinking of relaxing after a day at school.
She said he walked up to her front porch with her and said he was lost and then asked her how old she was and what her name was.
According to the girl he then began asking inappropriate questions.
‘That’s when I decided to run inside the house because I’d already unlocked it,’ said the girl to ABC News.
‘I tried to slam the door on him but I couldn’t.’
