WATCH: Police Search For Male Caught On Camera Licking Doorbell For 3 Hours!
Officers in California started a search for a creepy man who was caught on a home surveillance video rampantly licking the doorbell of a family’s home for just over three hours before ‘relieving himself’ in the family’s front garden.
The bewildered family in Salinas, USA, called the police after their CCTV security system caught the man and his bizarre rendezvous with their doorbell (scroll down for the footage).
“I thought, ‘Oh boy, that is just weird,’” homeowner Sylvia Dungan told KION News.
Dungan and her husband were not home at the time of the disturbing and eerie incident, but their children were but weren’t aware of what was taking place on their doorstep.
Ms Dungan told the news station that she was alerted by the home security system that notifies them when a movement has been detected outside of their address.
“I thought, boy there’s a lot of traffic.
“I go, 5:00 in the morning?
“My son doesn’t get home till 6:00 a.m, that’s kinda odd,” Dungan explained.
“I started reviewing the video and said ‘Who the heck is that?”
The footage of the creepy encounter helped Salinas Police Department to identify the doorbell-licker as Roberto Daniel Arroyo.
“We were pleasantly surprised the image was so clear it didn’t take us long to identify the individual,” police spokesperson Miguel Cabrera told KION News.
Police told the news station the doorbell licker could be charged with two misdemeanour charges, including prowling.
It’s unsure if the doorbell has been offered some sort of counselling after the ordeal.
It is also not known what the motive was behind Mr Arroyo’s bizarre fascination with the families doorbell or whether he has a proclivity with doorbells in general, or just the Dungan family’s device.
