It was 5am when a woman with a gun defended her home against a man trying to break in.
Betty Collins took action and confronted the man with her loaded .357.
“I said, ‘Get on the ground.’ and he got on his knees. I said, ‘no, put your face in the dirt and you’re gonna stay there.’,” recounted Collins.
The past two mornings, she says, someone has stolen items from her car.
But this morning was going to turn into a home invasion unless she did something about it. Watch the news video below:
It started outside a convenience store.
Collins’ boyfriend was riding his Harley to work at the Jeep plant when he spotted someone he described as ‘suspicious,’ so he called home to warn her.
Collins says wearing shoes and shorts – no shirt, and at 4:45 in the morning, he started heading toward her house, then started kicking the door, trying to get inside.
“I screamed as loud as I could, ‘get off my porch. I have a gun. I will shoot you.’ And he stayed at the door,” explained Collins. “I’m like, ‘Get off my porch. I have a gun. I will shoot you.’ He didn’t move, so I opened the door and there he was standing 5 inches from the barrel of a loaded .357.”
Toledo Police arrested Kyle Caldwell, who’s 31 and from Temperance, Michigan.
Collins says she didn’t shoot him after what happened not far away on Douglas last month.
A homeowner there shot and killed a 24-year-old who was also attempting to get inside.
Instead of spending the night in the hospital, or worse, Caldwell is spending the night in jail.
Meantime, Collins says she’ll be resting easier inside of the place she’s called home the past 13 years.
“I’m not moving. This is my home,” said Collins “That’s what the second amendment’s for. I’m going to continue to protect my home.”
Caldwell is set to be arraigned tomorrow morning.
By the way, Collins says she’s working on getting her PH.D. from The University of Toledo in Criminal Justice.
