B.C. mom confronts knife-wielding intruder wearing wig, rubber gloves who ‘just wanted to see the baby’

US News

An Osoyoos, B.C., mother says she was feeding her newborn when a woman opened her front door and said: “I just wanted to see the baby.”

On Wednesday morning, the mother was sitting on the couch, feeding her seven-week-old daughter and drinking the coffee her husband had dropped off earlier in the morning before he drove to work.

She heard knocking at the door, but didn’t answer. Instead, she checked her security cameras on her smartphone and saw a woman wearing yellow rubber gloves and a black wig.

“This person looks weird. I don’t know, I just got a weird vibe,” she said. “Then she opens the door.”

That’s when the woman asked to see the baby.

The mother, who asked not to be identified to protect her family, told the woman she shouldn’t just walk into other people’s houses. The woman said “OK,” the mother said, and then slowly closed the front door.

Shortly after that the woman pulled a weapon out of her waistband, the Osoyoos RCMP said in a press release.

The mother said she had got up to lock the front door, and was watching the intruder through a glass panel.

A B.C. woman checked her security cameras on her smartphone and saw a woman wearing yellow rubber gloves and a black wig standing outside her home.

“And all of a sudden she comes charging in the house with a butcher knife above her shoulder, coming at my face with it,” she said. “I just kinda threw her out the house.”

“I don’t even know how I did that … I was like, ‘holy shit, you’re holding a f—ing knife,’” she said. “It happened so fast, but so slow at the same time. It’s weird.”

The mother said she ran to the backyard to get Bailey, her pitbull and ridgeback cross. She brought him inside and called the police. She said she watched on the security cameras as the woman strolled away, like nothing had happened.

On Thursday, the RCMP arrested a 45-year-old woman. She was to appear in Penticton court Friday afternoon. Osoyoos is a town of around 5,000 people in the Okanogan Valley.

The mother said she’s seen the woman around town before — but nothing like this has ever happened.

“She lives not even a block away from my house, so I don’t really feel good about that,” the mother said.

“My four-year-old is terrified of going to sleep now. She’s like ‘Mom, she’s in my room,’” she said. “It’s going to be a long couple weeks.”
