Report by Charles Ward.
At 2:30pm, C. Z. R. G. field analysts in Port Angeles, Washington interviewed a family there who had just encountered what they described as a "mad man".
An 8-year-old boy was playing in his driveway when an unknown individual "limped" out of the forest next to the home. According to the child, the man was "disgusting" and made "funny noises" as he came close. The man got close enough to grab the boy's shirt. Luckily, the boy slipped out of that shirt and ran into the house.
The boys father rushed out of the house to confront the man with his hunting rifle, while the mother stayed in the house and called 911.
"I just wanted to scare the guy," said the father. "I definitely wasn't going to shoot him...but he just kept coming toward me. Of course, I told him that I'd shoot him but, like I said, I wasn't going to kill this guy."
When asked to describe the assailant, he said, "He stunk. He must have been drunk because he was having a hard time keeping balance. He was all dirty and I just figured he was some homeless guy who'd been living in the forest...Geez, he really stunk. He kept making these god awful moans as if he was hurting or something."
With the desire to not hurt the man, the father entered his home and locked the door behind him. The man "bumped" against the door, according to the mother, and never tried to force it open. After about five minutes of this, the man wandered back into the woods.
The police arrived soon afterward. Dogs and a search party were sent into the forest . The search is still underway at this moment. More information will be available soon.
