Armed Suspect Watches TV While Resident Hides In Bathroom With Grandchild In NW OKC
A metro grandmother called Oklahoma City police from her bathroom on Wednesday to report an armed intruder.
The disabled woman was home with several young grandchildren when the police said Monte Webb, 44, broke into the home.
The woman was asleep on her sofa when she heard a knock on the door, according to the police report. The resident reportedly thought it was a family friend but realized it was a stranger who forced his way into her home.
The disabled woman told police she took one of her grandchildren and hid in the bathroom. She locked the door and called 911.
Caller: “Got his foot in the door and then he just pushed his way in.”
Police said after Webb forced his way into the home near NW 10th Street and Western Avenue, he waved a gun around.
“He pulls out a pistol and attempts to fire two shots at her television set,” Oklahoma City police Sgt. Brad Gilmore. “Fortunately, the gun did not fire.”
Webb reportedly made himself at home. He sat down in a chair and started watching TV. The resident said she could hear the intruder talking to himself.
Caller: “He’s not making any sense. He’s saying grandpa and why would you do this and why would you do that?”
Webb eventually left the home. Officers found him walking down the street.
He was arrested and book into the Oklahoma County jail.
Police said no one inside the home was injured and officers later learned the suspect’s gun was stolen out of Colorado.
