It’s a [omitted] job, but someone has to do it
A Floridian woman shot and wounded a naked, poop-covered home invader Sunday night.
27-year-old Victor Etherington, who, according to deputies was intoxicated, demanded entry to an Ocala residence. The homeowner (name still unknown), not recognizing him, told him to leave.
The poopetrator kicked in the door, prompting the woman to take refuge in her bedroom, grab a .22, and call 911. Etherington chased her upstairs, removed his soiled shorts and forced his way into the closet, and that’s when the homeowner shot him once in the gut.
When police arrived on the scene, they found Etherington in his birthday suit, bleeding, covered in poop, hiding behind the bedroom door.
Authorities indicated Etherington lived in the house prior to the current residents.
Local news reported:
When deputies arrived at the home in Northwest Ocala, they found Victor Alex Etherington naked and hiding behind the bedroom door.
He had defecated on himself, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office said.
The incident happened Sunday evening when Etherington started knocking on the 54-year-old homeowner’s window and demanded she let him in, deputies said.
The victim was not identified by investigators.
The woman told Etherington to leave, but he kicked in the door and chased her upstairs to her bedroom, deputies said.
The woman told investigators she locked the door, called 911 and armed herself with a .22 caliber handgun.
She locked herself in the bedroom closet when Etherington forced his way into the bedroom, deputies said.
Once inside, the man took off his shorts — “which he had defecated in” — and forced his way into the closet, at which point the homeowner shot him in the stomach, a sheriff’s office report said.
“The intruder ended up with no clothes on in her bedroom,” Lauren Lettelier of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies arrived at forced their way into the home and found Etherington naked and hiding behind the bedroom door, the report said.
Etherington was taken to Ocala Regional Medical Center where he underwent surgery, investigators said.
He was in the Intensive Care Unit, but his condition was stable, they said.
The homeowner did not know the intruder, but detectives believe he lived in the home for about 12 years before moving, the sheriff’s office report said.
Deputies said the man was intoxicated and was in the wrong home.
Charges are pending.
