I was 8 years old, 1988, Bogotá Colombia; I saw him the same way many others have had. I was playing in the living room of my house, and he appeared in the window outside in the patio. He was wearing a big hat and had bright red eyes. He looked at me. It was an unforgettable terror. I could only scream and run.  I know 2 other people who say they saw this figure with the hat and red eyes and they were not sleeping. It is not an apparition from a dream.
