Terrified locals have nicknamed him “The Bucktown Creeper” and “The Ghost”… and as of this report, he’s still out there.
Police suspect that a series of home invasions throughout a Chicago neighborhood can likely be traced to a single, unidentified perpetrator in a ghostly gray hoodie — likely the same individual who was recently caught on camera observing his latest victims while they slept on their couch.
Jack Mackercher and Jordan Buranskas were completely unaware of the man’s presence until they realized the next morning that Buranskas’ purse was missing. After reviewing their security camera footage, the pair were horrified to discover the man walking freely around the house, watching them for about 10 minutes while they slept.
He was reportedly so stealthy that even their two dogs– who were sleeping in the same room — never even noticed him enter the house.
“You could see him look down on us multiple times on the couch,” Mackercher told WTHR News. “You see him creep back out because I guess we had gotten up… we had woken up from the TV being on and running… [we] turned off everything and went to bed at the exact same area that he went.”
The couple said the creeper first appeared on camera at around 3:30 am on Monday.
“He stood there for about five minutes the first time, then walked away,” Buranskas told ABC 7 Chicago, who posted the unedited security video shown above. “[He] came back and hovered over us again for another five minutes.”
Chicago Police confirm this is one of several similar incidents in the same neighborhood. As of this writing, no arrests have been made.
