Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in East Sussex, England, on November 1978, late at night, the witness saw a strange humanoid figure, apparently wearing all black clothing, peering through a window, while her normally aggressive dog cowered in a corner of the room. No other information.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Patricia B Grant, FSR Vol. 25 #2.

Points to consider:

Could the report be less informative? There is almost no information here, and the case can consequently have all kinds of ordinary explanations. Maybe, for example, a small girl frightened by a man peering into the house by a window, in the darkness.
