A haunting video has captured the moment a woman in Texas appears to be ringing doorbells in the middle of the night, with handcuffs on.
The unknown female was caught by local, Jennie Drude’s security camera, who eventually shared the footage on her Facebook page as well as with the police.
During the video, the woman walks up quietly to the door of a home with what appears to be a kind of restraint on her wrists, and without any trousers or shoes.
She was ringing doorbells in the Sunrise Ranch area of Montgomery, Texas at around 3am on Friday, August 24.
By the time any of the residents got to their doors, the woman had gone without a trace. Well, except for the video:
One resident told Click2Houston:
We were dead asleep in our beds. My husband was woken up by doorbell ring. It rang probably 20 to 30 times.
He walked outside no one was in sight. It’s like she disappeared in thin air.
It was kind of scary because this girl looked like she was just in a shirt. She looked like she had wrist restraints on her wrist and she was barefoot. You can see her with a worry on her face looking around.
Nobody in the small community recognises the stranger who, all-in-all, rang on five people’s doorbells.
Police searched the area and knocked on doors to find out information from residents. They’re currently assessing surveillance footage.
In the meantime, people on social media have their own ideas…
One commenter warned:
Set up!… she was knocking on peoples doors for “help” and her appearance played a part of her act… bet ya life she’s working with/for a gang, anyone in that neighbourhood (which looks like a well to do neighbourhood) woulda opened their door to her that night, woulda had 30 men running in after her and ransacking you and your house! Happens in London a lot… be aware. [sic]
The police is the best person to help her at that time of the night. It could be a set up to rob some person or it could be that she escaped from an attacker. At that time of the night you don’t take chances of opening your doors.
A third added:
Since she rang more than one doorbell, I doubt it is criminal. Criminals don’t want to wake up the neighbourhood so the neighbours can watch them rob someone.
And if it was criminal, whomever she was working with would have already cased the neighbourhood and they wouldn’t have picked a house with a video doorbell … [sic]
Blimey. People on social media love an ominous ellipsis don’t they…
