Mum woke to find burglar at bottom of her bed who told her ‘sorry, wrong house’

A mum was left terrified when she woke up in the middle of the night with the feeling that someone was standing at the bottom of her bed staring at her.

Sophia-Louise Crawford said she woke up at around 5am with the feeling that she was being watched.

She was horrified to spot a burglar in the doorway who simply said "sorry wrong house" before fleeing.

The 26-year-old, who was in bed with her army husband at the time, said she sleeps closest to the door and was terrified to see "guy standing there looking" at her.

Mum Sophia said "hello" before she realised she didn’t know him and shouted "what the hell," which woke her husband up.

Kieran, 29, woke up to the screams and immediately chased the intruded down the stairs as Sophia-Louise, 26, ran to check on their two children.

Distraught Sophia-Louise said she "couldn't believe" that it happened and thought maybe it had been a "mistake."

The incident left her "totally in shock" and was even more upset when she realised the children's room had "been ransacked and the cupboard door left open."

The couple believe the man had an accomplice who helped him remove items from the property before he entered their bedroom.
