A Jefferson County woman says her dog saved her from being sexually assaulted by a man who forced his way into her home, the Kansas City Star reports.
Deputies said Tanya Kendell answered a knock at the door of her apartment Wednesday night. The man outside identified himself as “the cable man.” As soon as soon she let him in, the man forced her down and tried to sexually assault her, deputies said.
That’s when her German Shepherd, Grace, responded, attacking the intruder and biting his upper body. The man ran off. Police were looking for him.
