Wednesday, February 1, 1984

A 16-year-old Orlando, Fla., girl awoke to find a man undressing in her bedroom. When the man grabbed her and said he had a gun, the girl said she, too, had a gun and was going to get it. The threat startled the man so much that, pants dropped to his ankles, he backed off and attempted to escape out a window. But he got caught in the window, which the girl and her mother held shut on him. When police arrived, he was dangling helplessly from the window.
