Bizarre home invasion caught on audio recording in Florida

(WBBH) A Florida woman is facing felony burglary charges after bursting into a family's home and attacking a woman as she sat on the toilet.

Barbara Retz says she heard the pounding on the door of her Lehigh Acres home first and realized someone was trying to break in.

Her husband was at the door, defending their home.

"All of a sudden I hear him yelling. And I can hear him trying to corral one of my dogs, which are large breed dogs," Retz said.

Her husband grabbed one Great Dane by the collar, while trying to keep Kathleen Schwan from charging inside.

"I'm trying to call 911," Retz said.

But Barbara's signal failed. So instead, she grabbed her phone and hit record.

"I'm on the toilet and my bathroom door is just getting kicked in," Retz said.

For minutes, the couple says they struggled to get Schwan out as their dog went on the defense.

"The dog bites her on the ankle, she falls, hits her mouth and she started bleeding everywhere and she's spitting it everywhere," Retz said.
