An East Lubbock home has been inscribed with a cryptic message, leaving the family to wonder who did it and why their home was targeted. An unknown woman carved the message into the front door of the home on the afternoon of Tuesday, October 8, 2019.

Angelica Arrambide told local media that she had left her home with her four kids at 3:30 p.m. that day, to run some errands. When she returned with the children to the house approximately an hour afterward, the Vivint security system sent her a notification that someone had been at the front door.

“She didn’t knock, she didn’t ring the door bell and I didn’t even know who she was,” Arrambide told Everything Lubbock. Video through the security system captured the woman in the process of carving a message into the front door of Arrambide’s home. In it, she appears to be using a pocket knife to do so. Local media has stated that the message “has words starting with the letter B, Torrez, Samarippas, and the numbers 8715.” The homeowner is deeply curious about why the woman would choose to write on her house and what the message could mean. In the meantime, she has contacted the local authorities about the occurrence, and subsequently, officers will be patrolling the area on the lookout for the woman in question.
