BRIER — A Brier woman, 45, was arrested Sunday after she reportedly attacked a man at her home, hitting him with a revolver.

Police were called about 9 a.m. to the house along 29th Avenue West, according to a court affidavit. The man, 52, was friends with the woman and her nephew. He stayed at the house on a regular basis.

The woman told police that she found the man trying to get into the crawl space at her house. She said her nephew had told her in the past that the man had been recording her in the shower.

The woman told police that she attacked the man and then invited him inside.

There, she reportedly poked him in the eye and cornered him in a bathroom with a .357-caliber revolver. She allegedly struck him with the gun, pointed it at him and threatened to kill him.

Her nephew told police they had invited the victim over to confront and assault him.

The woman was booked for investigation of first-degree assault and harassment.
