From the porch, a prowler spied a woman sleeping in the
living room of her Eugene, Oreg., home. He gained entry and after
robbing the woman, raped her. During the struggle, she escaped to an
adjacent room, took up a pistol and returned, demanding he leave
immediately. When the rapist refused, she shot him. A suspect was
taken into custody after he sought aid at a nearby residence.
