A 34-year-old Boulder County, Colorado, woman became the
trapped prey in a life-and-death contest with her estranged husband
one Saturday when he invaded her home and held her against her will
for more than five hours. The woman finally managed to break free by
crawling through a second-story window. Then, turning the tables on
her tormentor, she re-entered the house this time with a gun and
ordered him to leave. The man was later arrested at his home and
charged with attempted murder, burglary, felony menacing, harassment
by stalking and false imprisonment.
