Things to Do if You Think Someone Is in Your House and You Are Home Alone:
First of all, call the police and tell them there is a possible intruder in your home. They may not be able to get here in time, but they may know someone who can. You might have to explain the situation to them to be sure they understand what you mean, but if they believe you, they should be able to figure out a way to send help your way.
If you think someone is still inside your house, try to lock all the doors and windows and put some furniture in front of the doors and windows. Make sure you are ready to fight back if you have to.
You can also look around your home and if you think someone is hiding somewhere, move furniture so you can see him better. Finally, make sure you stay calm. Don’t panic or scream and make noise, because it could scare the person away. If you want to get out of your home, use the door or window you locked earlier.
Additionally, call a neighbor to see if they are home. They may be able to come forward to help you.
Finally, lock the doors and windows. They won’t be able to get in while you’re still home, and they can’t get in if you’re home.
As for the intruder, they have to figure out if you’re home, and if so, how to get in. They will probably try to use the front door, but that may not be the easiest way to get in. If they are smart, they’ll be coming in through an unlocked window. Try to make sure that no windows are open when you lock them.
If you have a dog, make sure that they are safe in another room. Most dogs will be pretty scared of a stranger in their house. Make sure that they aren’t going to freak out and make it worse by barking.
