Yesterday, police found 20-year-old Samuel Dye on top of his paternal grandmother, who he was threatening with a hammer and attempting to sexually assault. His motive? He didn’t have a girlfriend and wanted to “get some.”
Yes, really. The Charlotte Observer reports on this eminently terrifying story:
Officials say Dye went to the woman’s house around 4 a.m. Thursday. The woman’s son, 43, went to check on his mother when he heard her screaming, according to a Chester County Sheriff’s report.
When he went into the house, he found Dye on top of her, hitting her in the head with a hammer. He pulled Dye away from his mother, the report states.
The woman told police Dye showed up at her home with a hammer in his hand and began complaining about not having a girlfriend. He said he was going to “get some,” the report states.
That’s when, according to the report, he began attacking her. The woman asked Dye to stop and said they needed to pray. Dye then exposed himself to the woman and tried to rape her before hitting her in the head again and knocking her onto the ground, the report states.
Dye’s grandmother, unsurprisingly, resisted her grandson and suggested they pray together. That plea fell on deaf ears and Dye commenced his assault. It was in this position – beating his paternal grandmother over the head with a hammer while he tried to rape her – that police and Dye’s own father found him.
