Some watchful and alert High Point Terrace residents were able to catch a creeper on camera. But he is still on the run and residents are terrified.

Residents are so afraid that they didn't want to be identified.

"I'm scared. I'm scared," one resident said. "I thought that this was a wonderful neighborhood. I'm scared to even go on a walk by myself."  

One couple couldn't believe what they saw and heard on their front porch around 1:30 a.m. Monday. A man was ringing the doorbell over and over and over. 

"He said 'open the GD door now'," the homeowner said. But then, the man continued by threatening the residents. 

"I will find what I am looking for," he told them.

The couple had no idea what he was talking about. The man's image was captured on another neighbor's Ring video doorbell. Just 15 minutes before he had been standing on their front porch.

"He did not knock. he did not ring the doorbell. He just stood there," the resident said. 

After standing there for a while, the man slowly walked down the driveway and got into what the victims said looked like an early 80's Buick La Sabre with a loud engine.

The first couple's security got a good photo of the car. They think the man had been in their back yard because wooden pallets had been moved near a window. The couple also noticed a pitch fork had been moved and a hammer that was on a table was near their back door.

The victims want it all to stop.

"We were very scared and terrified," one victim said.  

These neighbors are joining forces, starting their own patrols.

"We want people to know, if you come to Highpoint Terrace, you're gonna get caught. We are after you," one victim said.

If you know the individual captured in the photo, or if you have any information on this man, you are asked to contact Memphis Police Department.
