    Woman Attacked w/a happy ending....she killed the bastard!

    A happy ending! We need more of these stories!


    Gwinnett Police have released a recording of the 911 call made by a Duluth woman after she shot the knife-wielding intruder who attacked her at home last Wednesday (May 11). Her assailant, identified by police as Israel Perez Puentes, 34, of Alpharetta, died later from the gunshot wounds.

    The incident occurred about 6:30 a.m. when Punetes entered the home in the 2800 block of East Mount Tabor Circle in unincorporated Duluth, as the resident, a 53-year-old woman, was coming out of the shower, according to a Gwinnett Police spokesman. "She was exiting the shower when the man wielding a [kitchen] knife entered her bathroom," said Gwinnett Police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter.

    The woman tried to fight off the man with the shower rod after she had fallen into the bathtub. Her attacker then forced her into the bedroom. Puentes apparently was going to sexually assault her, Ritter said. She was able to retrieve her .22-caliber pistol and then shot him multiple times, according to Ritter. Puentes left the house through the rear door and collapsed in the backyard.

    A neighbor to whose home the woman had run after the attack placed the 911 call then put her on the telephone. Sobbing hysterically, she managed to tell the dispatcher about the attack and give her address.

    “I was in the shower and the lights cut out in my house, and a man came in with a hood, and he had a knife in his hand….He told me to be quiet. He told me to get out of the tub, and he tried to force me on(to) the bed,” the woman told the police dispatcher.

    The woman was able to retrieve a .22 caliber pistol that she kept in a nightstand near the bed. “I took my .22, and I shot him as much as I could.” The woman informed the dispatcher she locked the rear sliding glass door after he ran out, and she rushed out the front door to the neighbor’s house. She said she wasn’t sure of his whereabouts.

    Puentes was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville where he later died from his injuries. The woman was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center in Duluth and was treated for minor injuries, Ritter said. No charges are expected to be filed against the woman. “It was apparently a justified use of deadly force," he said.

    Good for her.

    I wonder if he was legal.

    Good for her! Someone buy her a .45 and a drink!

    Good thing she knew enough about handling her handgun, to be able to deliver multiple shots to the target. ...and some people think its weird that I carry a glock into the bathroom when I take a shower! jasonz

    Come to think of it... she actually was pretty lucky that the intruder wasn't armed with a gun himself, and gave her enough time to get back into her bedroom, where she had her own gun!

    If he doesn't drag her to her bedroom, the story ends a lot worse.

    Best ending possible to a fucked up event.

    Call me paranoid, but I carry my 9mm, even if I'm going to dump.
    I've 10 years of the Army/LE service in my background and it's in my blood now to carry 24/7.

    I hope she comes out ok with all the legal stuff in the end.
    As for "Israel Puentes"..... good riddance.

    AFAIK, FWIW, IIRC, FTMP, IANAL. YMMV.
