The attempted home invasion happened on the 1900 block of Loxley near Upton, just before 5 a.m. Thursday.
It proved Betty Collins is a woman who stands her ground – with a gun in her hand.
“I said, ‘Get on the ground.’ and he got on his knees. I said, ‘no, put your face in the dirt and you’re gonna stay there.’,” recounted Collins.
The past two mornings, she says, someone has stolen items from her car.
This morning, she says someone was trying to get into her house.
“I’m not moving. This is my home,” said Collins “That’s what the second amendment’s for. I’m going to continue to protect my home.”
