A Texas woman shot a man who allegedly attempted to enter her home after he was seen inappropriately touching himself while simultaneously riding a bicycle.

According to local media outlets, the woman, who is in her 60s, was walking outside her southeast Houston home on Tuesday when she saw the man ride by on his bike while masturbating.

KPRC reported that the woman yelled at the man to leave her neighborhood and when she turned to walk towards her front door the suspect allegedly followed and attempted to force his way inside.

Police told KPRC that the woman warned the man to leave her property but he refused.

“She told him to stay away and not come in the house or she would get a gun and shoot him,” officials told KPRC.

The woman shot through the door and hit the man in the chest, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Afterward, the man jumped back on his bike but collapsed a short distance later, police told the Houston Chronicle. 

He was taken to the hospital in critical condition but is expected to be OK.

Last week the suspect was arrested for allegedly walking around the same area naked. He was out on bond when the most recent incident occurred.
