After receiving threatening phone calls from a male
acquaintance, a Virginia Beach, Virginia, woman feared she might be
confronted by the man. One morning he appeared at her door under
the pretense of retrieving a hair dryer he had lent the woman and
her husband. She asked him to wait while she went to get the dryer
and shut the door. While she was in the bedroom, the man broke into
the home, went to the kitchen and armed himself with a steak knife.
Her tormentor threatened her and confronted her in the bedroom,
where she drew her husband's semi- automatic pistol from a
nightstand drawer. After several unheeded warnings, the man lunged
at her. She fired and hit him several times. The attacker, a
criminal out on bond, died a short time later. The woman will not
be charged, police said.
