SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A Mira Mesa family is scared for their lives and has been living out of their RV after their home was randomly attacked multiple times.

”Obviously, this guy is still out here still,” a family member said.

On June 29, the family said they woke up to rocks being thrown at their front window until one was big enough to smash it.

“My husband ran out and you could see a guy crouching behind a car, and when he stood up, same thing … [he was wearing] black hoodie, black pants,” a female resident told 10News.

The following morning, they woke up to their RV windshield also smashed and the tires on their SUV slashed. About a week later, on the Fourth of July, they had another encounter with the same man they saw in front of their home after the last incident.

“My husband starts yelling, ‘There’s a guy on the roof, there’s a guy on the roof!” the woman said.

The woman added, “I felt something breeze past my face from the left to the right.”

A rock thrown by the man on the roof narrowly missed the woman’s face, but it hit her husband’s knee. She told 10News they spent hours in the emergency room that night.

After the multiple random attacks, the family doesn’t feel safe in their own home. They said they notified police, but so far, the person has not been located.

“We don’t feel safe bringing our children back. We have three children, [ages] eight, six and two. There’s no way I want to risk something happening to them,” the woman said.

Their neighbors have also spotted who they believe is the same man also trying to get into their backyards. While the family is left with the expensive damages, they say their main priority is keeping their children safe.

The family says the damages total nearly $2,000. Their neighbors have set up a GoFundMe page to help them with repairs.
