A 99-year-old woman was in for a little more than a rude awakening when a gunman entered her house and kept her hostage.
Doris Rucker Wasden, from West Valley City, Utah, was fast asleep when someone entered her house after shooting into a sliding glass door, the Deseret News reported.
The culprit was 18-year-old Freddy Velasquez, who first encountered Wasden's granddaughter CJ Montoya and her fiance, Jim Gabbard.
They soon came face-to-face with Velasquez who told Gabbard: "Give me your car keys or I’m going to kill you," local news station KSL reports.
While the pair managed to escape from the teenager at about 1:45 a.m., Wasden was still trapped in the house with the armed intruder.
Wasden told Fox 13 that Velasquez yanked out of her bed and left her on her bum, but when he returned, she had already crawled back in.
