Disturbing doorbell video footage captured the terrifying moment when a man went to a woman’s Las Vegas home Wednesday evening and demanded she open the door so he could ‘rape and kill’ her.
‘Are you sure? Are you positive? I just have a few questions for you,’ the man can be heard asking, as homeowner Amanda Nowak hides inside.
Nowak, who was home alone at the time, said she never responded to the man and called 911.
Her husband, Chas Leek, remotely accessed Ring’s intercom despite not being home and asked the man who he was and what he wanted.
‘What I’m looking for is the girl in the house cause I’m going to rape her and kill her. Can you have her open the door?’ the bearded, tattooed man responds, adding that he has a gun and a knife.
The man eventually walked away from Nowak’s home.

Nowak is a Las Vegas-based photographer and performer according to her Facebook
The man is now in custody, according to Nowak, who posted video of the incident on social media to alert neighbors.
‘So this happened tonight… pretty scary! I was home alone. You’ll hear my husband jump on The Ring after a bit, he wasn’t here… I was hiding where this guy couldn’t see me and I never said a word.. that whole beginning he’s just talking to himself,’ Nowak posted along with the video on Facebook.
‘Police were called, the lady from 911 stayed on the line until cop got here. File was reported and I showed him the video. Searching for him.. enough to arrest if they find him. Hubby is home now. Lock your doors friends!!’
The Las Vegas Police Department said the investigation is ongoing, and that more information on the man’s arrest will be released at some point.
The man was arrested by police hours after the video was provided to authorities and posted online and police had not revealed the man’s name and charges as of Friday
The man ultimately left Nowak’s doorway after the terrifying encounter

The video Nowak provided police was enough for an arrest, however the exact charges have not been made public.
‘UPDATE: HE IS IN CUSTODY!’ she posted hours after uploading the video to Facebook.
The Las Vegas-based photographer and performer applauded the community’s social media response to her video, which lead to the man’s quick capture by police.
‘On a personal note, the power of community using social media is strong and this proves so! Thank you everyone! I’m just glad he’s off the streets, and can’t harm anyone else. I do not wish to further comment.’
