That ain't the Avon lady

The peaceful Oleander area had some excitement yesterday when a “wild-eyed” man was walking around the neighborhood trying to open doors. According to an article in the paper today, a woman leaving for work saw the man coming at her and quickly got into her car and locked the doors. Staring at her through the window he was “drooling and breathing through his teeth like the guy on Silence of the Lambs.” Can you imagine how freaky that would be?

When the police arrived the man ran and then turned and tried to slash an officer with a knife. And after a brief struggle he was subdued and arrested. I'm surprised they didn’t shoot him.
