When Alice Woodruff from Waterbury, Connecticut walked into her backyard last Tuesday, the very last thing she expected to see was her neighbor, totally naked, raping her Pit Bull Terrier, which was tied to the wall.
WTNH reported over the weekend that Woodruff spoke to them, explaining the spectacle she witnessed in her own back yard.
“I thought my dog had killed somebody because I saw a man underneath her. I started to scream. I had a citronella candle and I threw it at him, screaming ‘Get off my dog, you have to get out of here.’ He said, ‘No, today is the day we are going to spend the rest of our lives together.'”
As soon as the penny dropped for Woodruff and she realized that the neighbor, whom she had never met before, was mentally ill, she recalls thinking to herself, “Did something like this just land in my back yard?'”
And when the man told her that he had been sent to do the heinous act by ISIS, Woodruff was sure something simply wasn’t right.
“He pranced through the yard naked, yelling ‘This is our day and you have to prosper in it, ISIS sent me,'” she reported.
With that, Woodruff rushed into her house, grabbed her gun, and returned to the backyard showing her neighbor that her gun was loaded.
“He kept saying this is the plan, that we were going to die today in a massacre. He didn’t seem to care that I had the gun, and I kept it down. Then I gave him a warning and shot the gun to the right into the dirt,” she said.
Unfortunately, due to the neighbor’s condition, he still didn’t quite get the message that Woodruff was trying to get across to him.
“He put his arms out and started walking toward me, telling me to kill him, but to know that as soon as I kill him that we were going to die. Honestly, the whole time I thought there was a bomb or gun and he was going to take it out and do a massacre,” said Woodruff.
The neighbor was taken by the police to the local hospital for a mental health evaluation, and he will subsequently be arrested on charges of cruelty to an animal, sexual assault, and breach of peace.
