Sapulpa residents harassed by prowler

SAPULPA, Okla. -- Residents are being harassed by a prowler and potential burglar.

Briana Wofford and her husband were having a normal Sunday night when they heard what sounded like a high-pitched dog whistle.

She said, “We were hearing tapping and like somebody was trying to push up the window.”

Luckily, it was locked. Wofford’s husband got on the phone with 9-1-1. She says the creeper went around to the other side of the house.

Wofford explained, “I heard them tapping some more on this window and I told him, ‘They’re at the spare bedroom window. That window is unlocked.’ So, he jumped up on the bed right here. As he jumped up on this bed, they pushed this window up about three or four inches and he slammed it shut and locked it really fast.”

Her husband said it looked like a white male in dark clothing who then took off behind the house.

And while tapping on windows isn’t a crime, because the perpetrator tried to open a window, it’s considered attempted burglary.

Wofford said, “When the cops got here, they of course walked around the whole house and didn’t see anybody. They realized that our shed and our garage were both open, which they always stay closed.”

Nothing was missing. Briana says police found two men walking away from her home, but they denied involvement.

The Woffords weren’t the only victims that night. Someone nearby chiming in on social media that they heard tapping on a window too.

Wofford reached out and said, “It happened to them that same night about 8:30. They live on the other side of this glass plant, right across the highway.”

Police are searching for who is responsible.
