|Police say the female resident (a 52 year old) answered a knock at her door. As soon as she opened the door, a masked man stepped into the doorway, grabbed her arm, and attempted to pull her outside. When this initial assault proved unsuccessful, the masked man pushed the resident back inside the home and shouted, “This is a robbery!” “The victim grabbed a baseball bat from behind the door and fought back" the KPD news release says.|
The woman struggled with her attacker removing his mask and recognizing him as family friend, Joe Sotello. She also noticed the gun tucked in his waistband.
