TRINITY COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Officials with the Trinity County Sheriff's Office believe that an armed neighbor prevented a violent confrontation between an armed convicted felon and a woman from the Glendale community from escalating into something much more serious Tuesday.

Bobbie Prater says she got home around 1 p.m. Tuesday when she heard gun shots. Her dog was growling, so she decided to go to her front porch to see what was going on.

"I went on to my front porch and my neighbor's son was there," Prater said. "He scared me. I kept asking what do you want. He kept grabbing himself, his privates and things, and when he did that I had like a fear that he was going to try to sexually assault me."

Prater said her dog ran towards the man, which distracted him and allowed her to run away to her neighbor's house. Her neighbor Vicente Vince Ramos told the man several times to leave his property.

Moments later, David Hunter ran across Ramos' yard with a rifle.

"All of a sudden I look up and I see him coming up with a .243 rifle," Ramos said.

I am surprised that the cops did not shoot the lady’s dog.
