In May of 2015, a sexual predator was on the loose in San Jose, California. He had already attacked a woman in the bathroom of a local grocery store and escaped. On May 5th, 2015, he followed a 13-year-old girl home from school, and tried to assault her inside her home.
Two things happened during this attack: the young victim fought back, and was able to scare the perpetrator off, averting a larger tragedy; and the surveillance system installed at the victim’s home captured the entire incident: the suspect stalking the victim as she walked on her street, his confrontation with her on the front porch of the home, his physical attack after forcing his way into the foyer, and finally, his retreat from the premises. The footage from that video, along with some photographs obtained from the grocery store incident, were immediately circulated through the news media and social media websites to start a city-wide manhunt. Three days later, Mohammad Khaliqi was arrested and jailed in Santa Clara County on multiple counts of burglary, attempted sexual assault, and false imprisonment.
