A terrified schoolgirl woke up in the early hours to see a hooded intruder staring at her from the doorway of her bedroom.
Wendy Hutchinson, 15, has been left traumatised by the shocking encounter at her home in Tregele, near Cemaes Bay on the Isle of Anglesey.
When the teenager spotted the man staring at her at roughly 2.30am on Saturday she kept still and did not make a noise.
The man, who was wearing a black hoodie, eventually walked away, reports the Daily Post.
“After the man went away, Wendy woke up her older sister Jackie, who she shares a bedroom with and then they both woke me up,” said her dad Tony Hutchinson.

Mr Hutchinson immediately went to look for the intruder: “The girls and I had a quick look for the man in the garden, and my youngest daughter spotted him hiding in the darkness.
“When she started shouting he started walking towards her but then fled over our six-foot garden fence when he saw me.”
The family noticed a backpack the man had left behind, but didn’t touch it and contacted the police.
“They came within 30 minutes, they had a look around and took statements,” Mr Hutchinson said.
“The mentioned they’d come back with police dogs, but never did .
“The police went, and then at around 4.30am my wife spotted the man in the garden through the window. I think he had probably come back for his backpack.”
Mr Hutchinson and his 18-year-old daughter, Jackie, gave chase and the man again fled.
North Wales Police said a 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of burglary in connection with the incident and released without charge.
Mr Hutchinson said he was now planning to install security cameras in the wake of the incident.
He said: “She has been left terrified, and is constantly checking to see if the doors are looked, and she’s been sleeping with me since it happened.
“We took her to the doctor this morning because she’s suffering very badly from anxiety.”
