First thing is to calm down, it was probably just a drunk. Is he still there?

Ok, breathe, he's gone. Have a talk with your parents about it when they wake up. Do you have any CCTV cameras on your property that cover the exterior of your front door?

Ok. Make sure all your doors and windows are locked, first and foremost. Don't know why that guy would go to some randos house and put a spoon through the letterbox which makes me think drunk, concerning then if that were true that he got in a car and drove.

Most the doors are locked except the outside one and I’m too scared to close it

Well, having all the doors locked would make you about as safe as you can be. Think about it, you saw him drive off and if he came back you would have heard his car especially at this late hour when the street is silent.

Could be a drunk fool with a spoon, being strange...

Or it may have been someone trying to see inside either by just opening to letterbox or possibly trying to see any reflection in the spoon.

They’ve gone now, which is the main thing. So take a deep breath, make sure the doors and windows are locked and try to relax for the night. Have a chat with your parents in the morning and explain to them what happened.

A piece of advice: if you/your parents keep house keys or car keys really close to the front door I’d recommend moving them somewhere further away. Years ago we had some guys going round my old neighbourhood, and using things to grab car keys through letter boxes. So I’ve kept my house keys on a hook on the wall about 2-3m away from the door ever since.

Hope you manage to get to sleep soon

Oh this must have been a really frightening experience for you. It reminds me of when I was 14 amity my mom and we were just chilling at around 11pm and a big drunk guy tries to break through the door suddenly and reaches his hand almost grabbing my mom. It was really a scary experience but he eventually went away after I threatened to beat him up. Anyway it turns out he was the neighbour and had a rough night and even apologised. At the moment this seems like a difficult situation but that’s life filled with tough things like this.
I do hope you feel better soon.

Wake up your parents and tell them. Given that I don't know where a drunk would get hold of a spoon (it's not like pubs are open), it was probably a thieving junkie trying the door. Smackheads are fond of spoons.
