CNN -- A
surveillance video captured a burglar walking through a home, and creeping into a toddler's room as the child's parents slept nearby.
On April 5, just after 5 a.m., as the family of three sleeps, an intruder sneaks around, hovering over what's most important.
"I was infuriated when I saw him walking back and forth in my baby's room."
He shines the flashlight through the room and even on the sleeping child.
Father Thinh Le says at one point the two make eye contact, and then the little boy goes back to sleep.
Cameras are mounted throughout the house and Le said the burglar knew it, but didn't care.
The family didn't know about the break-in until a neighbor found their laptop and briefcase and returned it. Le reviewed his surveillance video and found the creepy images.
Investigators believe the intruder is a teenager. He got in through an unlocked first floor window, stole only $60 but also a little peace of mind.
Other homes were burglarized in the same neighborhood around the same time. Authorities are asking anyone who recognizes the person in the surveillance video to contact them.
