Shortly before 5 a.m. on January 5, 2023, deputies were called to a home on Mathews Drive on Hilton Head Island for a report of a burglary. Once on scene, deputies learned a 16-year-old female victim woke to find a man inside of her bedroom. They also learned when she got out of bed and confronted the man, he left the residence.
