A Richmond woman woke to strange noises in her bathroom and took swift action.
In the wee hours of Friday morning, November 26, a female resident in the Mustang Crossing apartment complex in Richmond heard strange noises coming from the bathroom of her apartment.
Richmond police sergeant Lowell Neinast said, “The victim was lying in her bed around 12:50 AM when she heard a noise in the bathroom of her apartment. After listening for awhile the victim took a knife from her purse and decided to check out the situation.” According to Neinast, “When the victim exited her bedroom she noticed someone walking in her apartment.
The victim grabbed the subject from behind and turned him around and stuck a knife into the suspect’s abdomen.” With the intruder skewered, the victim walked him outside in an attempt to get a neighbor to call police, said Neinast.
Neinast said that the intruder, later identified as James Mcandrew Fletcher, 41, of Rosenberg, got away from the woman and made his way to the Oak Bend emergency room where he underwent surgery for his injuries. Sergeant Neinast said the case remains under investigation; no charges are pending on the victim.
The suspect, Fletcher, is facing charges for Burglary of a Habitation, a 2nd degree felony.
