Woman Grabs Boxcutter After Screaming Man Bangs on Door
Male suspect backs out of house after mistakenly thinking homeowner has opened the door to help him.
A Dacula woman was startled in the early morning hours of Nov. 12 when a man began banging on her front door and ringing the bell. The woman told police that the man was yelling “Help me, call the police. They are chasing after me!”
The woman reported that as she approached the door and turned on her porch light she saw a man standing up against the window looking in at her. The woman quickly turned off the light and ran down the hall screaming for her mother to call the police.
According to a Gwinnett County police report, the woman said she retrieved a box cutter from the kitchen and returned to the hallway where she encountered the man standing inside her home. The woman said the family does not typically lock their doors so the man must have just walked in.
