” A mother and her two daughters are still reeling from a terrifying ordeal in which a man broke into their Corona home, took off all his clothes, and tried to use a hammer to smash through a wall to reach the room where they had barricaded themselves. “
Sometimes you just have to wonder where these kinda people come from. What kind of place produces guys like this. Some small Mid-western town in Indiana? A back country hollow in NC? Nope. Exactly where you expect. The weather is great there I hear though.

Some people just have one of those “break into your house naked with a hammer ” faces.
Rachel Bollin said she was home with her two daughters, while her husband was away on business, when she heard a loud smash and thought her dogs were getting into trouble.
Then she heard a man’s voice say, “Call 911. I’m in your home.” That was mighty nice of him!
He used a child’s scooter to break a rear sliding glass door, Bollin said, then went to the garage, removed all his clothes, and got a hammer before making his way up the stairs to the bedrooms.
At that point, Bollin said she called 911 as she barricaded herself and her twin daughters in a bedroom across from the master bedroom.
She said her terrified girls were hiding under blankets while the naked intruder pounded on the bedroom door.

Through all this, Bollin said she was screaming out the window for help, speaking to the 911 dispatcher on the phone, and trying to protect her children at the same time.
The man then moved to the master closet and began smashing through a wall with the hammer, almost breaking through to the adjoining room to reach Bollin and her daughters.
Thankfully, police arrived within minutes and arrested the intruder.
Hmmmm. if only she had something small, and portable and hand held that could have ended the threat posed by this naked rampaging man…
“In my mind, his intention was to at least kill me,” Bollin said. “And then, why are you naked? What is your intention? And now you’re busting into a child’s room.” Yea we wonder.. what cold he have been thinking.? I’m sure that he being naked for the world to see, likely had a “tell” indicating exactly what he had in mind.
However, much to Bollin’s shock and anger, she said, he was released on bail four hours later. What? In The People’s Republic of Kalifornia with its priority of giving drug addicts, crazies and felons preferential treatment? Get me my old timey fainting couch! I declare! How could this be?
Has the lady of the house, a good Left coast liberal, learned her lesson from this encounter with the real world?
“I always felt like in California that we really cared about people and that we were trying to create fair laws, but this is very, very unfair because he has more rights than my children. So forgive me, but at some point you have to say, there were minors in a room where he was naked and trying to break into, with a hammer.”
Bollin said the family is also considering civil action against him. She said they have taken out a restraining order and are appealing to state lawmakers for more information on the case.
…….Yea. That will do it.
