Burglary – forced, entry – residence, false imprisonment, aggravated assault-gun, Deerwood Court
A Shaw Road woman told police a man held her at gunpoint inside her sister’s house after her friend dropped her off. A man appeared as soon as she entered the dining room, pointed a gun at her and ordered her to drop her purse and get down on the floor, she told police. The man dragged the woman down the hallway into a bedroom, yelled at her, held a gun to her neck and kicked her back and buttocks, according to the report.
She told police she feared the man would rape her. The man exited the bedroom, slamming the bedroom door behind him, and retreated to another part of the house, according to the report. The woman, still lying on the floor, texted her friend and dialed 911 on her cell phone, whispered for help and then began to “howl” to mask her activity in case the man was still in the house.
She told police 911 called her back at which time she reported the man was armed and in the house. The woman then heard her friend knock at the front door and, realizing the man was gone, went to the door, according to the report.
The friend told police she drove down the street to a cul-de-sac to turn around after dropping her friend off. When she passed by the house, she saw a man exit the front door and walk to a parked car, according to the report. The friend told police she thought the man was a friend of the woman’s family, asked how he was doing and he replied “It’s alright, I’m his son.”
The friend told police the man drove off at a high rate of speed. She then got of her car and went to check on the woman who had called out for help, according to the report. The man allegedly gained entry into the house through a living room window, police reported.
