Do robbers come back a second time?

It was 2am and this guy was standing out my backyard, put a ladder up onto my house and cut the fly screen, but then went off the ladder or something, and then he ran off once the lights were turned on. He didn't take anything at all, and then after like 5 mins the police came by and drove here. Would he come back? I'm really scared, and I am 16. Also would they come during day time?

I don't like the police officer's suggestion of pushing the ladder away from the house while the criminal is climbing up it. It would probably work, but I would be concerned the criminal would simply sue the home owner for his injuries. I would wait for him to break into my house and then shoot him dead just inside the window. Once he is inside the home, it's a home invasion and you are entitled to take steps to defend your home. Aim for the center of mass. Don't try to get cute and go for the head shot; shoot him in the chest, and empty the gun into him. If he doesn't die, you don't want him taking the gun from you to turn it on you. If you don't have a gun, it sounds like it would be cathartic to bean him several times with a baseball bat as he tried to climb through the window, but that takes a lot of energy and luck and a stomach to keep striking him again and again even after the bones in his skull no longer offer any resistance to the bat. Remember, the skull, NOT the back or arms, because injured equals lawsuit, while dead is done. If you break his arms he can in no way be considered a threat to you, so killing him then is probably going to be more trouble than it's worth... UNLESS you shove him out the window to fall to the ground below. As long as you can show he WAS in the building, you can probably explain why the fellow was found outside. Remember to call 911 AFTER he stops twitching. If asked why you waited so long, tell them you were having a screaming fit and cowering in a corner, and are they going to lock him away to keep him from coming back, please?

The "robber" apparently didn't think anyone was home or thought they could get in and out without waking anyone up. Next time, wait for them to get 3/4 of the way up the ladder and then push it over. That'll give them a lesson in gravity. Another note... once a house is robbed, experience thieves will OFTEN come back to the same house 4-8 weeks later for a couple of reasons: (1) You're heightened sense of awareness will have waned and (2) you and your insurance will have replaced the items that were stolen the first time. Now there's a whole new set of things for them to steal.

Sometimes they do, in order to admire theiur work. But in your case I think he's scared shytless, and is probably searching for a softer target, so no he's not comming back a 2nd time

Yes. Get some motion sensors and some flood lights for outside.
