Woman Believes God Saved Her From Burglar, Doesn't Call Police

A Seattle woman believes God saved her from a burglar, so she didn't even bother calling police, KOMO News reports.

The woman, whose name has not been released, told officers she was praying in her kitchen Feb. 1 when she felt someone tugging at her hair, according to a police report obtained by the station. At first she thought it was just her husband, but when she opened her eyes she saw a strange man standing in the room.

She says she shouted, "Lord, help me!" and the stranger fell down and hit his head on the refrigerator, then left the residence, taking only a $20 bill he had picked up off the table.

The woman did not report the incident, she said, because she felt God saved her from harm. Her husband ended up calling 911 when a strange car pulled into their driveway a week later, which concerned him because of what had happened the previous week.

While God may be getting credit for saving this women, he has also been accused of promoting some not-so-holy behavior in the past.

In November, God allegedly told Florida woman Melissa Miller to drive 100 mph in a 30 mph zone. Police say Miller also claims she repeatedly banged on her car horn because of "the Lord telling me to do it."

And in August, James Crittenden of Kentucky allegedly set a gas station toilet on fire, citing "religious reasons" for the act. Crittenden was also once previously arrested after cops said they caught him huffing cans of Reddi-wip inside a store.
