Ferguson fought off her assailant by striking him with a glass beer mug and managed to push the man out of her bedroom. Grice broke down her bedroom door and tried to attack her again.
This time, Ferguson grabbed a crowbar and thrashed him repeatedly until he was unconcious and bleeding, she told Fox.
“I just kept hitting him, kept hitting him and kept hitting him,” she said.

Once Grice was unconscious, Ferguson rushed out of the house and dialed 911 but, despite living a block and a half from a police station, no officers came to her aid. “So then I called them back again, she said ‘Who is this?’ I said ‘This is Angela Ferguson. Please come help me, please come help me,’” she said. She had to call police three times before they responded.
When police arrived to her home at 7 a.m., they found Grice unconscious in the victim’s ransacked home. Grice who has prior convictions for aggravated robbery and possession of a controlled substance is charged with home invasion and aggravated criminal sexual assault. He’s being held on $250,000 bail.
