The bed intruder is an unknown male and attempted rapist who invaded the Dodson residence on July 28, 2010. Said intruder attempted to rape Kelly Dodson, who was asleep in her bed at the time, hence the name. She yells, and her brother Kevin Antoine Dodson arrives in the room and fights with the attempted rapist. He then flees the scene of the attack, and the WAFF-48 is called. When Kevin was being interviewed by WAFF-48 News, he notes that the bed intruder left his shirt and fingerprints during the scene of the attack. It is currently unknown where this man is. The attack occurred in Huntsville, Alabama.
The incident spawned many memes including the infamous Bed Intruder Song, which is essentially a remix of the interview between Kevin and WAFF-48 News.
