Wow, Star. That's freaky. Good for you for keeping your head.
My poor grandma had the same thing happen to her years ago...she lived in a really rough neighbourhood (had been there for sixty years and watched it go downhill, but flat-out refused to leave) - she was in her front room and heard someone break her window in the back, and ran out the front door into the street yelling my grandpa's name as a ruse (he'd been dead 15 years at that point in time ). The kid or whoever it was breaking in ran off.
