A neighbor said, “I knew it was some kind of violence, there were as many cops out there.” Channel 2 Action News.
The victim’s surveillance video system captured the crime. In a video posted on social media, the attacker can be seen carrying a large bouquet of flowers to the woman’s door on Canterbury Lane.
The victim told us over the phone that the man came to her door, gave her first name and said that he was delivering flowers for her. When he opened the door, he said he used a Taser on it. He immediately asked his sons to come downstairs and he fled.
“I was worried about my kids being scared in the neighborhood,” said a neighbor.

Neighbors said that they would have opened the door too, but they would not give it another chance. They’ll ask delivery people to leave items on the stairs of their porch instead.
