STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police say a man called 911 to report that his cat attacked him and was being so aggressive that he and his wife couldn’t get back into their home for nearly four hours.

Mohammed Lokman called Stamford police just after 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. He said the nearly eight-pound cat attacked his leg and bit him late Tuesday night.

Lokman and his wife then went outside. He told a dispatcher that when they tried to get back in, the cat was waiting behind the door in an aggressive manner. The couple ended up sitting in their car for a while.

The couple was able to get back inside after the 911 call. Police advised them to stay away from the cat the rest of the night.
