Someone shoots 2 1/2-foot arrow into couple's bedroom; police investigate

February 6, 2011 |  7:41 am

When Priscilla Muller heard the loud crash through her bedroom window, she thought it was an earthquake, or maybe even a squirrel. What she found was a 2 1/2-foot-long carbon-fiber arrow lodged in the wall above her bed.

At first, Muller said, she and her husband didn't know what caused the sound. They found broken glass on the floor near her window, but nothing else appeared amiss. "I was scared and didn’t know why this happened," Muller said of the Jan. 28 incident. "Nothing like this has ever happened before."

Burbank police were at the couple’s home in the 700 block of North Buena Vista Street in west Burbank for hours, but could not confirm who shot the arrow or why.

The arrow -- made from wood with a carbon-fiber finish -- appeared to have originated from next door, where it first pierced through a fiberglass panel separating the two properties before busting a 3-inch hole in the window and finding a home in the Mullers' wall.
