DECEMBER 1984, LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, A WOMAN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Ten years after the alleged fact, a ufology bulletin indicates that in Los Angeles, California, on December 1984, at late night, in an apparent dream-like state, a woman saw a humanoid described only as of a typical "Grey" and dressed in a gold colored outfit come to the door of the apartment building and attempt to enter.

The frightened witness ran to her room.

The "grey" then somehow entered the bedroom, picked up the witness' infant daughter and struck her hard on the bottom. The witness began struggling with the creature over the child.

Suddenly, she found herself on the roof of the building with her daughter, the creature and two other persons, who were described as in a state of trance and did not respond to her questions.

The short creature was holding a wand-like instrument, which it dipped into a gold colored solution.

Holding the wand and apparently making a loud "whooshing" sound, the creature gradully made a large saucer-shaped object began forming overhead.

A blue beam of light came from the saucer down to the roof like a "stairway." At this point the witness is unable to recall anything further.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Los Angeles, California, on December 1984, at late night, in an apparent dream-like state, the witness saw a small humanoid dressed in a gold colored outfit come to the door of the apartment building and attempt to enter. The frightened witness ran to her room.

The small creature then somehow entered the bedroom, picked up the witness infant daughter and struck her hard on the bottom. The witness began struggling with the creature over the child.

Suddenly she found herself on the roof of the building with her daughter, the creature and two other persons, this two were in a trance-like state and did not respond to her questions. The short creature was holding a wand-like instrument, which it dipped into a gold colored solution.

The creature continued to hold the wand apparently making a loud "whooshing" sound and gradually a large saucer-shaped object began forming overhead. A blue beam of light came from the saucer down to the roof like a "stairway." At this point the witness is unable to recall anything further.

The being was described as a typical "gray" type entity.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Duane Bedell, Heartland UFO Journal # 3, December 1994.

Points to consider:

This case shows most of the usual characteristics of an hypnagogic hallucination episode - aka "sleep paralysis" - turned into a story of a close encounter of the third kind:

It is possible - but not certain - that this story emerged in whole or partly from "memories recovered by hypnotic regression sessions", a method that does not allow to make any difference between memories of real or dreamed or hallucinated events. Nothing is specified about this.

Whatever my be, clues that it could have been an hypnagogic hallucination episode abund:

The sparse information in the reported story and the lack of any investigation-bound information does not allow for stating that this explanation is certain; but on the other end there is nothing here to claim that it cannot be the correct explanation.

Beyond this attempt at an explanation, it must be kept in mind that we only have a second hand story, ill-located, obtained through an unspecified channel from a unique witness about whom nothing is know except that she was in an altered state of consciousness.

I provide a few references among dozens about the topic of hypnagogic hallucination and sleep paralysis:
