Neighbors Help Woman During Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:

A Florida woman woke up to a nightmare when man breaks into her home and attacks her in front of her children.

Fox's Tiffany Teasley has more with victim and how she survived the attack.

36-year old Sujheil Burgado showed FOX News the window he believes a suspect climbed in through around 2 o'clock this morning while her family was sleeping

"When I opened my eyes he was just there like in front like right there," she said.

According to the report, 22 year old Guillermo Mancio-Zamora tried to choke her then pushed her, right in front of her 13 and 14 year old sons

"I jumped up and I went to, like screaming, like oh my god get out, get out, I yelled that in Spanish and I yelled that in English, I told the man to get out I screamed the police is on the way oh my god call the police somebody help me." Burgado said

But Burgado say she fought back pushing the man out the door of her Deland home.

"I started fighting him and the neighbors and everybody came out," she recalled.

She says several neighbors on her street heard the screams and came outside to help, holding the man down while she called 911.

Deputies arrested Mancio-Zamora charging him with burglary with assault or battery and possession of drug paraphernalia. Burgado now credits those neighbors for not letting the suspect get away

"Thank god for them every one of them, they came out every body girls, guys, everyone," she said.
