According to reports the homeowner returned home after an extended vacation and encountered the woman, Jill Duell. The victim—who has not been identified—called 911 and officers responded to the scene.
A police report said it appeared the suspect may have been living in the home while the owner was away. Some furniture and clothes were out of place.
During the 911 call, which was first obtained by WESH-TV, the victim could be heard saying that the woman was fleeing the scene. He assured the police that he was not chasing her.
