The unknown man was arrested shortly after the disturbing incident

Disturbing video footage from the doorbell captured the terrifying moment when a man went to a woman’s home in Las Vegas on Wednesday night and demanded that she open the door so he could “rape and kill” her.

‘Are you sure? Are you positive? I just have a few questions for you,’ you hear the man ask, while homeowner Amanda Nowak hides inside.

Nowak, who was home alone at the time, said she never responded to the man and called 911.

Her husband, Chas Leek, had remote access to Ring’s intercom despite not being home and asked the man who he was and what he wanted.

‘I’m looking for the girl in the house, because I’m going to rape and kill her. Can you let her open the door?’ the bearded, tattooed man responds and adds that he has a gun and a knife.

The man eventually ran away from Nowak’s house.

'What I'm looking for is the girl in the house, because I'm going to rape and kill her.  Can you let her open the door?'  says the bearded, tattooed man, adding that he has a gun and a knife

The man is now in custody, said Nowak, who posted a video of the incident on social media to warn neighbors.

“So this happened tonight… pretty scary! I was home alone. After a while you hear my man jumping on The Ring, he wasn’t there… I hid where this man couldn’t see me and I never said a word… that whole beginning he just talks to himself,” Nowak posted along with the video on facebook.

“The police were called, the 911 lady stayed on the line until the officer got here. The file was reported and I showed him the video. Look for him… enough to arrest if they find him. Hubby is now home. Lock your doors friends!!’

Las Vegas police said the investigation is ongoing and more information about the man’s arrest will be released at some point.

The man was arrested by police hours after the video was provided to authorities and posted online, and police had not released the man's name and allegations on Friday.

The video Nowak provided to the police was enough for an arrest, but the exact charges have not been made public.

“UPDATE: IT’S UNDER MANAGEMENT!” she posted hours after uploading the video to Facebook.

The Las Vegas-based photographer and artist applauded the community’s response to her video, leading to the man’s swift arrest by police.

“Personally, the power of community using social media is strong and this proves it! Thanks everyone! I’m just glad he’s off the streets and can’t hurt anyone else. I don’t want to comment further.’
