The Morning Blotter: Central District Woman Chews Out Home Invader

In totally badass news, a Central District woman chewed out and scared off a man who broke into her home and threatened her with a gun last weekend.

Police say the woman was sleeping in her home near Pratt Park in the early morning hours of August 21st when a man turned on the lights in her bedroom.

“The suspect quickly turned off the lights and said, ‘give me all your money! I have a gun,'” a police report says.

The woman didn’t see a gun so, according to the report, “she quickly got out of bed and confronted the suspect.”

Here’s where it gets really good: The woman said “that she was yelling at him to get out of her house [and] she told the suspect to unlock the front door and leave.”

When the man opened the front door, the report says, “she pushed him out.”

The suspect ran off down the street and the woman called police. It appears the suspect—described as a black male in his 50s, about 6’0, with a gray beard, wearing a gray sweatshirt and black pants—wasn’t able to get anything, other than a good tongue lashing, in the incident.
