Harrowing Black-Eyed Woman Encounter in Phoenix, Arizona

A Phoenix, Arizona woman has a harrowing experience with a black-eyed woman late one night at her home. The woman left herself into the house and refused to leave.

I recently found the following account, mixed in with other recollections, in an old database:

"My experience with a black eyed woman happened mid December 2014. I was living in downtown Phoenix at the time and just moved into my apartment the previous month.

I was out with some friends that night and got home around 10:00 pm. I had to be at work at 5:00 am so I went straight to bed. I woke up abruptly to knocking on my door and thought, 'it's 2 am...who the hell is at my door?' I laid my head back down, but then I heard knocking again. I peaked out my window to see who it was and it was a young Hispanic woman who was very pale. She yelled "I need your help!" I immediately sprung out of bed thinking this girl was in trouble. I instantly thought if my sister or mom, if they were in that position I hope someone would help.

I cracked the door open and asked, "Are you okay, what's wrong?" She said "I need to use your phone." Her voice was very calm but something was just wrong. She was about 5 ft 8 in., 18-20 years old or so. Everything about her seemed normal but she had these strange glasses on and a strange vibe. I told her "Hold on let me grab it." I went back into my room to grab my phone when I heard the door slowly open. I quickly began to have second thoughts about what I just did opening the door to a stranger that early.

I walked back out to give her my phone when I saw her laying on my couch. I told her, "Make it quick I need to be at work in a few hours." As I said that she turned her head towards me, took of her glasses and smiled. I couldn't move. Her eyes were completely black like someone sharpied her eyeballs, and had some type of black substance in her teeth. She stood up and eased her way towards me. I tossed her the phone not wanting to be anywhere near this person. She grabbed it and made 2 calls, which later I found out were disconnected numbers.

When she was done I asked her, "Can you wait outside for your ride I need to sleep." She replied "I can't leave." I said you need to wait outside you can't be in here. She began to cry. I told her I'm sorry for whatever happened to you but you really can't be in here. She looked up at me, smiled and asked "Can I use your bathroom before I leave?" I pointed to the bathroom and she went into it without closing the door. I grabbed my phone from the coffee table, dialed 911 but it didn't go through. I yelled, "You need to leave NOW!" I heard nothing from her. I peeked into the bathroom and what I saw will haunt me forever. She was scratching at her face and smiling in the mirror. I saw that and ran to my room and locked the door. I kept yelling, "I called the police!" I heard her giggle and say, "I told you I can't leave!" I wanted to cry, I was shaking and didn't know what to do. I kept telling myself, "I'm strong, I'm strong."

About 5 minutes went by and I heard knocking on the door again as if the situation was in replay. I peaked out my window to see if it was a concerned neighbor but it was her, again. I sprinted to my door to lock it but it already was. I was paralyzed in fear. How could she lock my door from the inside and be out? I cracked my window open and threw out a sweatshirt with $20 bucks in it. I yelled, "Get a cab, hitch a ride just leave me alone!" She didn't touch the sweatshirt or the money and sat there on my steps as if she was waiting for me.

I began pounding the connecting wall to my neighbor. I dialed 911 again and it finally went through. As I explained the situation to the dispatcher I peeked out the window to see her gone along with my sweatshirt. I felt the biggest relief.

Needless to say I didn't sleep the rest of the morning. As I left for work I opened my door to see my $20 bill on my doorstep. It looked like a brand new crisp $20 bill. I picked it up, ran to my car and left for work. I'm not exactly sure what I experienced that night, but I will never forget it." HS
