"God, his eyes, he looked like the devil, I felt my life was
absolutely, positively in danger," said Ron Oatman of Thousand Oaks,
California, describing the black-bearded, bare-chested man armed
with a 4-foot bamboo pole who broke into his home claiming to be the
Pied Piper. Confronted by an armed Oatman and houseguest Steven
Schmidt, the increasingly agitated intruder refused to leave until a
gunshot to his thigh sent him dashing from the home. Following a
brief skirmish with Schmidt in the street with sticks, the "Pied
Piper" smashed through a neighbor's front window. Oatman pursued
and held the man at bay for police.
