Powerful Religious Message Makes Michigan Home Invader Walk Away

| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

A man who broke into a Michigan home and assaulted a woman inside on Monday left the house when the woman delivered a biblical message to him.

“God loves you,” said the 38-year-old single mother to her attacker, according to her neighbor. “You don’t want to do this.”

It was 4:45 a.m. on Monday when the intruder entered her Dearborn Heights home. She feared he would attack her daughter, but instead he just left.

Her neighbor Julie Wilding told WXYZ-TV that the victim is a devout Christian who spends a great deal of time with her special needs daughter.

A police officer saw a young black couple drive by and pulled them over. What he did next left them stunned:

“I told her God was watching out for her,” Wilding said. “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.”  

Another neigher told WXYZ that the community is a close-knit area and the home invasion is shocking.

“To have a violation like that in this neighborhood… as close as we are,” neighbor Joe Kowalski said. “There are people that I've known … their children have taken over the houses. If there is someone who needs anything they can go to a neighbor’s house or the neighbor can find someone who does know.”

Police in Dearborn Heights are still searching for the suspect, who escaped the home through a basement window.
