Home Intruder Flees After Single Mom Preaches Bible Verses, Tells Him ‘God Loves You’ as He Attacked Her
(SOURCE) A single mom living near Detroit, Michigan reportedly deterred an intruder from attacking her further when she began preaching to him, telling him that God loved him and that he didn’t really want to proceed with the attack.
The victim, a single mother with a special needs daughter who has not been named by local media, was reportedly sleeping in her bedroom in Dearborn Heights early Monday morning when an intruder entered through the basement window of her home and began assaulting her.
Julie Wilding, a neighbor and friend of the 38-year-old victim, told local WXYZ-TV that the victim started telling the intruder “God loves you, you don’t want to do this,” while also preaching bible verses to him. Her words seemed to have a direct affect on the intruder as he reportedly got up and left the home without attacking the woman further and without touching the daughter.
“I told her God was watching out for her,” Wilding told the local media outlet. “Someone was watching out for her. To be able to walk away from something like this […] by witnessing to somebody and changing the course of what they planned on doing […] to just walking away.”
The victim reportedly sustained mild injuries, and has been described by her neighbors as a deeply religious person.
