SAND SPRINGS, Okla. – A Sand Springs woman said she came face to face with the man police believe to be a serial burglar. They want help identifying him.
Police said the man has hit numerous times. They think he could be connected to even more crime throughout Tulsa County.
The woman, who asked to not be identified, said she saw the man staring back at her through the window and holding a bat. She said she pointed a gun at him and told him to leave.
Her aunt, who lives just down the street, said she was at the house in a matter of minutes.

“She was still screaming and hollering and crying. She was saying that she was afraid she would have to shoot him to protect her daughter,” Ms. Mullin said.
Police said the man could be connected to other crimes and they were stunned when surveillance video showed him get away on a motorcycle.
“We think he’s looking for small items he can take; guns, cash, jewelry. Things he can conceal on his person and then flee on the motorcycle,” Deputy Chief Mike Carter said.
Mullin said the entire area is on high alert.
“Everybody is afraid. At night every noise you hear you go to the door,” Mullin said.
Police do not know if the man is armed with a gun, but they do consider him dangerous. They are welcoming any tip no matter how big or small.
