Raleigh, NC Woman Attacks Home Intruder with Bedpost

From www.wbtv.com, January 25, 2012 by Chris Dyshes

RALEIGH, NC (WBTV/WRAL) – A Raleigh woman says she was getting into the shower when a man came into her house, and she had to defend herself with a bedpost.

According to WRAL-TV, Victoria Jones was undressing to take a shower earlier this month when she saw the man walking down the hallway.

Jones was home with her 10-year-old sister and 9-year-old son at the time.

She says the first thing she saw was the wooden bedpost and she “nailed him” with it, WRAL reports.

“What I am scared of is about what could have happened, and that’s why I gave it all I had,” Jones said. “I didn’t know what his plans were and what would happen to my kids if I didn’t do the best I could to get him out of here.”

The incident happened on January 13.

Police told WRAL  that Jones’ sister ran to a neighbor’s house for help after the man came into the home.

“We were just playing with the dog, and he just walked in,” Massey said. “I was thinking, ‘What if I screamed, and he could have did something to me and my nephew, and then my life would have been over.”

Jones says after she hit the man with her bedpost, she chased him down the hall where she took one final swing.

“I hit him that one last time, and he just went out cold,” she told WRAL.

That’s when Jones says her neighbors got to the house and they held the man until police could get there.

Forty-year-old Lucio Miranda was charged with first-degree burglary and first-degree possession of stolen goods by police in Raleigh.

He was reportedly found with the keys to Jones’ car in his pocket.

Officers transported Miranda to the hospital to be treated for injuries he received during the bedpost beating. He reportedly suffered a black eye, a broken ankle and an injury to his head.

He was then booked in the Wake County jail and is being held on a $108,000 bond.
