COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – A 9-year-old Colorado Springs girl became an unexpected hero after two men wearing “Jason” masks barged into her home on Halloween night.
The little girl heard a knock on the door and she thought it was the first trick-or-treaters of the season. When she opened the door two men, both wearing masks from the “Friday the 13th” movies, barged inside carrying guns.
“They just walked in and pushed me against the door so I hit my head,” the girl said.
The men struck the girl’s mother’s boyfriend with a gun and grabbed the girl by the hair. She was able to escape and ran to a neighbor’s home.
“They hit my boyfriend in the side of the head with a gun,” the girl’s mother said. “My 9-year-old, they tried to put a bag over her head. I’m screaming, crying and they’re telling me to shut up.”
“I jumped from the steps and ran from the back door to get help,” the girl said. “It was the scariest moment in my life.”
“It was amazing,” her mother said. “I couldn’t believe that she did that.”
The suspects got away with a home phone, a cellphone and some cash.
Nobody was seriously injured.
