FARMINGTON, CONNECTICUT AT UConn HEALTH, ALICE GAINER, CBS2 NEWS. THANK YOU. NOW TO A CBS2 EXCLUSIVE. STUNNING SECURITY FOOTAGE TONIGHT CAPTURING THE MOMENTS AN INTRUDER ROBS AN NEW JERSEY FAMILY. CBS2’S TARA JAKEWAY SPOKE WITH THE YOUNG MOTHER TERRIFIED FOR HER TWO KIDS AS SHE WATCHED IN HORROR FROM INSIDE THE HOME. Reporter: IN THIS EERIE HOME VIDEO, EVERY HOMEOWNER’S WORST NIGHTMARE. SOMEBODY, STRANGER WAS IN YOUR HOUSE WHEN YOU ARE SLEEPING. THAT’S THE WORST FEELING. Reporter: BUT IT HAPPENED AND CLAUDIA ROACH’S ELIZABETH HOME SUNDAY NIGHT. SHE WAS ASLEEP IN HER UPSTAIRS BEDROOM WHEN HER PHONE STARTED RINGING OFF THE HOOK. IT WAS HER DAUGHTER CALLING FROM HER BEDROOM IN THE BASEMENT. SHE STARTED SCREAMING AND FEELING THAT HE’S GOING TO ATTACK HER. Reporter: 15-YEAR-OLD NICOLE WAS TALKING ABOUT THIS MAN. SHE SPOTTED HIM ON THE MAIN FLOOR LIVING ROOM ON AN APP LINKED TO SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS. SHE CHECKED THE CAMERAS AFTER HEARING NOISE UPSTAIRS. HE WAS FOR MORE THAN AN HOUR IN MY HOUSE, WALKING AROUND, GOING OUTSIDE, COMING BACK. Reporter: THE 41-YEAR-OLD HAD INSTALLED CAMERAS THROUGHOUT THE HOUSE AFTER A PREVIOUS BREAK-IN. HERE SHE SHOWS US HOW HE GOT IN THROUGH A BACK DOOR. SWIPED HER PURSE FROM A KITCHEN CHAIR, THEN EMPTIED EVERY BAG IN HER CLOSET. AT ONE POINT CLAUDIA SAYS SHE SAW THE MAN PEEP THROUGH HER BEDROOM DOOR. SHE SAYS SHE LEAVES IT OPEN SO THAT HER 5-YEAR-OLD CAN COME INSIDE. THANKFULLY ON SUNDAY NIGHT THAT’S WHERE HE WAS, SAFELY CURLED UP WITH HER MOTHER. ONCE HE MOVED ON AND WAS CAUGHT HEAD ON IN THE LIVING ROOM CAMERA, SHE MADE HER MOVE. THAT’S WHEN I CLOSED THE DOOR AND I CALLED THE POLICE AND I ASKED THE POLICE TO COME. Reporter: HER CRIES FOR HELP STARTLED THE MAN AND HE RAN OUT THE FRONT DOOR, MAKING OFF WITH HER PURSE. WITH ALL THREE LADIES UNHARMED IT COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE. STAY CALM, STAY QUIET, AND SHE DID THE BEST THAT SHE CAN DO. Reporter: ABRAHAM SOLEMAN, FATHER OF ROCHA’S YOUNGER DAUGHTER PRAISED HER OLDER SISTER’S ACTIONS BUT HE’S IMPLEMENTING HIS OWN SECURITY PLAN. I ACTUALLY PICKED UP MY DOG FROM MY HOUSE AND DROPPED MY DOG OVER HERE. Reporter: WHILE POLICE HUNT FOR THE MAN IN THE VIDEO, THE 100-POUND DOG WILL BE STANDING
