Mum captures woman wielding machete outside home in ‘scene from horror film’

A terrified woman captured the moment a woman was seen wielding a "machete" outside of her home in Ring doorbell footage that looked like scenes “out of a horror film”.

Susan Blackburn was upstairs in bed at her Anfield home when she heard a bang followed by the sounds of her dogs barking on Friday, July 14.

The 41-year-old mum, whose two daughters were asleep at the time, went downstairs to check where the noise was coming from.

But when she didn't spot anything she went back to bed, unaware of what had just happened outside.

It wasn’t until around 4pm the following day when Susan checked the footage of her Ring doorbell and found footage of a woman walking up her driveway with a machete.

The woman then uses the blade to slice the camera off the doorway in one large swipe, Liverpool Echo reports.

She said: "I was absolutely horrified. It was like something from a horror movie. The size of the blade she pulled out, I was just terrified. I just couldn’t believe what I had just seen.

"I heard a bang at about five past 12 at night. I thought my daughter dropped something out of the bed. I got up to check the house obviously.

"My two daughters were asleep. I went downstairs, the dogs were barking. I just thought something had fallen in the house."

On Saturday, Susan said: "I hadn’t noticed the Ring doorbell had gone. No one had come to the house that day.

"I heard someone outside and went to look on the Ring doorbell and it wasn’t connecting and the picture was unusual so I checked the last video.

"That’s the last footage that’s on my Ring doorbell. I was just gobsmacked. I don’t know what her intentions were."

Susan said the incident was completely "out of the blue" and she doesn't know who the woman could be.
