The man told police that he was watching television in the front of the home when he heard his daughter talking and an unfamiliar voice coming from the child’s bedroom.

When he opened his daughter`s bedroom door, he noticed his daughter was crying in her bed and hugging a stuffed animal. The man said at the same time he heard the cooling fan fall from the bedroom window and noticed an arm reaching inside the bedroom through the window.
