A mysterious prowler terrorising a small town has been captured on video without his usual mask as an FBI profiler confirms he is "preparing".
The so-called “Night Stalker” has been stalking the streets of Geelong, just south of Melbourne, Australia, late at night for at least the past three months.
The man doesn’t appear to have stolen anything, or does any damage, but locals have voiced growing concerns about his motives.

In the most significant update yet, local police have released CCTV images of the man’s uncovered face.
The doorbell camera footage was captured in the suburb of Werribee earlier this month, as the man appeared to be testing the locks of several properties in the area.
Scott Holbrook, from nearby Rippleside, captured the images on his night-vision camera. He told reporters: “He seems to be snooping… he moves around quite nonchalantly with his hands behind his back.”
“A lot of my neighbours had footage of him,” he added. “It was a matter of time before he came up our driveway”.
“I think he’s just looking for keys left under mats and scoping the place out. He never goes for cars or anything.”
Scott, who is in the security business himself, told the Geelong Advertiser: “Knowing they have been on your property and you don't know what their intentions are… The invasion of privacy is concerning."

In the most recent video, “The Night Stalker” is unceremoniously chased off by a dog.
Former FBI profiler Mike King told the Geelong Advertiser that, from the sightings so far, the prowler appeared to be “working his way down from Melbourne".
“It’s not someone who just happened to be walking home from the beach in their flip-flops and T-shirt and is peeking through a window,” he added. “This guy is preparing”.

Victoria Police told Daily Mail Australia that they were looking into the matter.
“Police are aware of several reports of a suspicious person seen in the Rippleside and Bell Post Hill areas between January 31 and February 3.
“The investigation remains ongoing."
