Woman narrowly escapes alleged intruder while filming TikTok video

A woman was hanging out and enjoying herself when her stalker allegedly broke in to her apartment — and she caught the whole thing on video.

Maryland resident Hannah Viverette was in her living room dancing to Bishop Brigg’s “River” when she heard a strange noise coming from her balcony. When she walked over to investigate, she apparently realized that a stranger had climbed up onto her balcony on the second floor in order to break in.

“Oh f***. Who are you?” Viverette can be heard saying to the stranger. She repeated the question over and over again, and then, with concern and consternation in her voice, demanded that the stranger leave.

“Am I your friend?” the stranger asked. “No!” Viverette responded. “Please get out.”

When the stranger refused to leave, Viverette grabbed her phone and knocked on her neighbor’s door. Thankfully, the neighbor let her in, no questions asked.

Scariest moment of my life,” Viverette noted in the caption of the video.

In a Facebook post, she revealed more details about the “absolutely unreal” moment.

“On Sunday night at approximately 10:20 p.m. I was alone, in the privacy of my home, music up, dancing, AND recording,” Viverette explained. “In a moment with my eyes closed, I heard my second story balcony door begin to open. Startled, I immediately moved towards the door to close it, only to realize there was a man behind the force.”

According to Viverette, she had seen the man “almost daily” around her apartment complex. He had even made “many uncomfortable advances” at her.

“For so long I brushed it off, assuming him to ‘just be a creep,'” she said. “It was the moment I came face to face with him at my door that I knew he was there to harm me. He kept his hands in the pockets of his hoodie with a smirk on his face.”

Thanks to the TikTok video, police were able to locate and identify the man: Angel Moises Rodriguez-Gomez, a resident in the building across the street from Viverette’s. Though local news outlets report that he was charged with burglary and stalking, he was released on bond and is still awaiting trial. According to Viverette, he maintains that he was “invited up” to the balcony.

TikTok users applauded Viverette for handling the break-in “like a boss.”

“I am so sorry. This is absolutely terrifying. You handled it so well!” one person said.

“I have no words, you handled that SO WELL!” another added. “I [would’ve] frozen.”

“This is so scary,” a third wrote. “Girl you are so brave, good for you getting out of there.”
