"What are you doing, what are you doing," Jacobson yelled from her bed at the intruder. "I just didn't know what I was thinking. Did any of my children come in?"
But it wasn't any of Dorothy's children stopping by, it was a burglar in her home.
"The door was locked but probably it wasn't shut enough for it to latch," said Dorothy's son David Jacobson.
The experience has left David on edge.
"He ran right past her bedroom door, maybe 10 feet away from her bed," said David Jacobson.
The burglar apparently came in once, took Dorothy's TV and left, he then came back and that's when she noticed someone in her home.
"H was noisy, he didn't seem to care if she was here anyway," said David Jacobson.
In order to see the TV, David thinks that somebody had to be peering through a window in order to see it on. He also says a couple of days ago, Dorothy found a gold chain, that doesn't belong to her, lying on the ground just feet from the window David believes the burglar was looking through.
"[He] knew just about where he was headed for, which corner of the house to go to," said David Jacobson.
When the burglar fled the house, Dorothy followed him and saw him run down the street.
She also found one of her bras laying in the drive way, that find has David suspicious the burglar might have had other motives.
"I think someone was peeking in the window, saw the TV here, right there's the dirty cloths hamper," said David Jacobson.
"[I'm] worried, because this is the first time I've ever had anything down in this area," said Dorothy Jacobson.
David and Dorothy have updated security and now David plans to take extra precautions.
"And I'll start spending random nights here," said David Jacobson.
Police have not made any arrests in connection to the burglary and they also don't have a description of the suspect. Police say they are speaking with neighbors and that the investigation is on going.
