The Bedford County Sheriff's Office has arrested a man they said was hiding behind a woman's home and grabbed her by the neck when she went outside.
The sheriff's office said they got a 911 call just after midnight on Wednesday, August 15 from Shady Grove Drive where a woman said she heard someone outside of her home.
The woman called her father, who lives next door, to also tell him.
When her father showed up, they both checked around the outside of the home, where they found Jesse Carter hiding outside behind the air conditioning unit.
The woman said Carter grabbed her around the neck, causing her to drop the handgun she was carrying after she shot him twice.
After a struggle, the victim said she was able to run away.
The sheriff's office said Carter, the ex-boyfriend of the caller, then assaulted her father.
