Southwest valley neighbors wake up to creepy knife-wielding man outside their door

Residents at a southwest valley apartment complex say this man was wandering around with what appeared to be a knife.

A knife-wielding man lurking around a southwest valley apartment complex has residents on edge.

One woman tells us the suspicious individual peeked through her window.

Imagine waking up in the middle of the night and finding this man on your front porch.

Surveillance images caught the individual in an overcoat hoodie walking around and looking through windows Wednesday night at the Wyatt Apartments off of Buffalo and Warm Springs.

Genea McHaney says the suspicious man looked through her window.

"Even though it's been less than 24 hours, I'm still frazzled because I don't know who is looking through my windows," McHaney said.

She says the suspicious man peeked through her bedroom window. What's even more chilling is the guy appears to have a sharp object in his right hand.

"There is something sharp, absolutely, in his right hand," McHaney said. "You look at the video really closely, there is something in his hand for sure."

Other neighbors spotted this same person lurking around apartment porches. This resident is too scared to show his face but says he heard the man outside his apartment around midnight.

"It kind of bothered me because my window was open," the neighbor said. "I have something to protect myself. It's not something I would expect out here."

McHaney tells us apartment security was alerted and escorted the man off the property, but he returned at 3 a.m.

"To be in a hoodie, it is scary," she said. "I have grandbabies. I take care of an elderly - take care of a person. That is not good."

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police would like to talk to this man.

He is described as a white man wearing glasses and with a beard. He stands at about 5 feet 9 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a hoodie overcoat.

"I want to feel safe and it's just, especially since I'm home by myself, not good," McHaney said. "No bueno."
