Woman Sees Rubber Band Around Door Handle, Then Realizes the Horrifying Truth

By

This is frightening. If you see a rubber band wrapped around the door handle of your house or that of a neighbor, call the police IMMEDIATELY.

A Facebook post from a woman who saw a rubber band on her front door handle explains the very real danger.

Kim Fleming Cernigliaro wrote:

“Two weeks ago during the day, a hard knock was at my front door, not a regular knock but almost pounding, (I honestly thought something may have happened to someone and they needed help) but something didn’t feel right….and I DO NOT answer the door when I am here by myself.

“After several Knocks, they finally left. I glanced and could see it was a man through the stained glass of my door. After about 30 minutes I walked outside to look for what I thought would be a brochure, but instead found a rubber band around my knob to hold the door to open when I unlocked the latch.”

From I Have the Truth:

According to Cernigliaro, when the sheriff came by to investigate, he told her it was not an isolated incident; intruders will use rubber bands to hold down door handles so that they can immediately bust in when homeowners unlock the door. They are able to take unsuspecting people by surprise without even waiting for them to turn the handle.

This is a very serious threat, and needs to be shared with EVERYONE.
