Son Saved Mom From Suspected Attempted Rape by Burglar

When a man allegedly entered a home uninvited and was suspected of planning to sexually assault the woman inhabitant in her sleep her 15-year-old son grabbed the burglar and held onto him until the authorities responded.

On Thursday, around 11:30 pm, a woman with three children was asleep in her room when someone allegedly entered her home through a door that was not locked. The man reportedly went into the woman’s bedroom and when she woke up he was said to be on top of her and holding her down so she was unable to get away.

The woman’s 15-year-old son went into his mother’s bedroom and saw the man allegedly pinning his mother down. The teen grabbed the uninvited guest forcing him away from his mom and was able to physically contain the man while her other two children called the police and waited outside for assistance.

The police arrived at the home and reportedly identified the intruder as 37-year-old John Wayne Morris.

When speaking with the alleged victim it was reported that she stated she was afraid to fight off the purported attempted assault because the perpetrator told her that he had arranged for harm to come to her children if she tried.

Morris was taken into custody and booked into the county jail, and he is being charged with first-degree felony burglary with intent to commit sexual assault.
