82-Year-Old Virginia Woman Fights Off Bedroom Intruder

ABC 13 News

Reba Shook tells WTVR-TV that she was asleep in her Henrico County, Virginia house when a man got inside by crawling through a window. That man then climbed into her bed.  
When Shook woke up, she first thought the man laying next to her was her dog, Cooper.

“I said Cooper what are you doing in my bed this time of night and I put my hand out for him to smell my hand I then I realized it was somebody,” said Shook. “I said well I dont know what youre after but you aren’t gone get nothing here.”

Shook says she then began fighting for her life.

“I started scratching him and you know I said some bad words,” Shook told WTVR-TV.

The intruder eventually ran away and has not been seen since.

Shook wasn’t hurt, but her family begged her to move after the incident. Instead, Shook went down to the gun store saying she’ll be better prepared next time.

“If anybody values their life they won’t climb into my window,” Shook said.

  1. “Shook wasn’t hurt, but her family begged her to move after the incident. Instead, Shook went down to the gun store saying she’ll be better prepared next time.”

    Another American awakens to the reality of the necessity of being armed.

  2. and to the credit of DHS she is now on a “List”… I for one am glad she will not be a statistic and figured it all out on her own
