Viverette said she saw the man—identified as 36-year-old Angel Moises Rodriguez-Gomez—around her apartment building but never spoke to him. She said he previously made her feel uncomfortable.

Police arrested Rodriguez-Gomez, but he was released on bail on Nov. 25, Heavy reports.

“A man that has made a point to watch me and make many uncomfortable advances at me from a distance, for months now,” Viverette wrote. “I knew he was there to harm me. He kept his hands in the pockets of his hoodie with a smirk on his face.” 

In the video, Viverette repeatedly asks, “Who are you?” and says, “Please get out!” She then grabs her phone, runs to the front door, and turns the camera toward her balcony. The man begins to retreat, shuts the door, and Viverette is let into a neighbor’s apartment, where she said she called 911.

According to Viverette, the intruder admitted to climbing up to her balcony. She said Rodriguez-Gomez told officers that he was invited up.

Viverette concluded her Facebook post by writing, “This cannot be the first attempt he’s ever made to act on stalker behavior. If anyone knows ANYTHING about this man or have ever felt/been uncomfortable/harassed, assaulted in ANY way by him, PLEASE SPEAK UP!! I refuse to live in fear and I refuse to let him continue doing this to me or ANYONE.”
