The video is chilling to see and hear. At about 12:30 a.m. Dec. 16, a home security camera caught the moment when a man went door to door banging loudly on each one and yelling in Spanish, “Auxilio!” or “Help!”

“There was a man running around the whole neighborhood desperately knocking on doors, and you could also hear children screaming for someone to help them,” neighborhood resident Isabel Ceja said during an interview with my colleague, Karen Marroquin of Telemundo.
