Security vision captures intruder watching sleeping boy

Disturbing security vision has captured the moment a burglar broke into a home, wandered through the house and watched a baby sleeping in his crib.

The vision shows the would-be thief shine a torch towards the sleeping two-year-old boy, watch him for a few seconds and then move to other parts of the house.

The boy's parents were asleep downstairs.

They were shocked when they watched the vision and realised how close the intruder had come to their son as they all slept in their home near Houston Texas.

"As soon as I knew we'd been broken into, I went upstairs and checked him right away and I kissed him so hard,' the boy's father Thinh Le told local KTRK TV

The intruder got into the house through an unlocked window, Britain's MailOnline reports.

"I was infuriated when I saw him walking back and forth in my baby's room,' Mr Le told local media. "My stomach was turning. He's my world. I love him."

He said he did not want to contemplate what might have happened if his son had woken up or cried.

The intruder went into another home, also through an unlocked window, but fled leaving behind valuables including a laptop taken from the Le's.

The residents contacted the Le family and it was then they realised what had happened.
