VENICE, Calif. —  A woman’s daring escape from a home intruder, in which she bailed out of a second-story window and onto her roof, was caught in a terrifying picture.

According to KTLA, Melora Rivera was forced to crawl out of a window Wednesday morning, wearing only a flannel shirt, after someone broke into her home.

Neighbors said the intruder was a known homeless man in the area.

The homeless man followed Rivera after she crawled through a window and onto the rooftop.

She then used her cellphone to call 911.

The intruder was identified as 29-year-old Christian Hicks.

He was arrested and is being held on a $50,000 bail.
