HOW WAS YOUR TUESDAY?

Texas Woman Shoots Masturbating Cyclist Intruder: Police

A Houston woman shot a masturbating man who tried to break into her home Tuesday, police said. The woman, who is in her sixties, was taking out her garbage when she saw the man committing the lewd act while he was riding a bicycle, she told police. Authorities said she yelled at him to stop and after that, he followed her to her door. The man then tried to break in, according to the police report. The woman told him to go away and that she had a gun, but he allegedly refused to stop. She then fired one round, which struck him in the chest. The suspect is said to have gotten back on his bike and attempted to pedal away, but collapsed. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but is expected to survive. The man was out on bond for a different exposure charge. No charges have been filed against the woman. “I would have done the same thing if it were my house,” a neighbor told the Houston Chronicle. “Ain’t no telling what else he was going to do or what he’s got. She was protecting her property.”
