TEENAGER Denise Stratford says killer Will Blencowe’s footprint is still on her window after he tried to break into her home, a week before he murdered Connor Tremble.
The 18-year-old said Blencowe tried to kick his way into her Witney home in February, after she had an argument with a neighbour about music.
She said her three-month-old son, Levi, and boyfriend Aaron Simpson were also in the High Street house at the time of the 10pm attack on Friday, February 7.
She said: “I didn’t know what to do if he had got in. He was shaking and was saying he was going to kill us all.
“It was really scary. I don’t even stay there on my own any more. I am scared that something is going to happen.”
Mr Simpson, 23, said he thought Blencowe would kill him if he got inside.
He said: “I genuinely believed him. He was really aggressive. He looked like a psychopath.
“I have nightmares over it now. Now when I go to sleep at night that’s all I see – his face at the window.”
Thames Valley Police last night could not comment on the alleged incident.
