WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH)– Waterbury Police are investigating after a woman had to confront a naked man at gunpoint while he allegedly performed sexual acts on her pit bull Tuesday morning. The man is believed to be suffering from mental health issues.

“I thought my dog had killed somebody, because I saw a man underneath her,” said Alice Woodruff. “I started to scream. I had a citronella candle and I threw it at him, screaming get off my dog, you have to get out of here. He said no! Today is the day we are going to spend the rest of our lives together.”

Alice Woodruff lives in Waterbury, she says on Tuesday at 10 a.m. she found a man attacking her dog Layla, who she describes as an aggressive rescue pit bull who they keep on an 800-pound tow chain in the back yard; however, Woodruff says Layla was calm during the attack.

“He pranced through the yard naked, yelling ‘this is our day and you have to prosper in it,'” said Woodruff. “‘ISIS sent me,’ and I was thinking ‘did something like this just land in my back yard?’ I ran in, got my gun out of the bedroom, and realized as usual the ammunition is in my car locked in my glove box. I showed him the clip went in, but I always kept the gun at my side while I was talking to him. He kept saying this is the plan, that we were going to die today in a massacre. He didn’t seem to care that I had the gun, and I kept it down. Then I gave him a warning and shot the gun to the right into the dirt.”

“After you shoot the gun, did he take off?” we asked.

“No, he put his arms out and started walking toward me, telling me to kill him, but to know that as soon as I kill him that we were going to die,” said Woodruff. “Honestly, the whole time I thought there was a bomb or gun and he was going to take it out and do a massacre.”

Woodruff works in the mental field. She says standing next to a pile of clothes, the naked man in front of her, she felt the danger, but also compassion.

“I knew he needed help, and I knew there was something going on,” said Woodruff. “I have been in the field for so long there is no help for these people.”

“After all this you were still corn earned for his safety?” we asked.

“I don’t want him to harm anybody else,” said Woodruff. “Somebody else might have killed him, and he was only 22.”

Woodruff says the man is a neighbor of hers but they had never met. Tonight, he is in a hospital. Police say they will arrest him immediately when he is released from the hospital. They plan to charge him with cruelty to an animal, sexual assault, and breach of peace.
