The 911 Call That Scared The Operator


Six years ago, a 911 operator would receive a call reporting that there was a strange man walking in circles outside someone’s front yard. The operator asked for the address, which was 1617 Quarry Lane, Pinella Pass. The operator would send a dispatch, yet due to the caller’s location, it would take a while. He then asked if all the doors were locked, which caused the caller to check the back door again. As the caller checks, he tells the operator how much he appreciates him sending the dispatch right before he went silent. The quietness on the other line began to confuse the operator: “…Sir? Are you still there?” The caller then responds by saying, “He’s…he’s still in the yard yard, but he’s…he’s upside down…” The operator became more confused, asking the caller to elaborate. Turns out, the strange man outside was performing a handstand, while staying perfectly still. The most disturbing part about this was his face. The man’s face stared directly at the caller with eyes and teeth so wide and bright. The caller becomes very disturbed asking when the officer will arrive: “Sir I need you to remain calm. I’ve put out the call and an officer is on his way. I want you to try and keep an eye on him, but make sure your back door is locked again. We need to make sure all possible access points are secured. Can you talk me through and confirm that your back door is locked?” The caller begins to walk backwards, keeping an eye on the man, and then gets to the back door. The knob is definitely locked, but he’s not sure if the deadbolt is locked. The caller then takes one second to check to deadbolt, lock it, and look back at the man. Like before, the operator had only heard silence once more: “…Sir? Are you still there?” “His…his face. It’s up against my window.” “Sir, I need you to speak up. What is happening?” “I looked away for a split second and now…his face. It’s pressed up against my front window. His teeth are huge and he’s still smiling…There’s no color in his eyes…Jesus please help me, why won’t it just move…” The operator then tells the caller to lock himself in a room he knows is safe, and asks if he is indeed alone is the house. “Yes, I’m alone in the house……wait a moment…he’s moving. He’s shaking his head. He’s telling me no. He can hear us. He’s telling me I’m not alone.” A sound of a crash or loud bump was heard on the caller’s end before hearing the familiar sound of silence for one, final time.
