When a man broke into her home, Venice Beach resident Melora Rivera had no choice but to flee to her roof to escape the intruder. Armed with nothing but a cell phone and wearing only a flannel shirt, she hid behind a window ledge and called 911.
The man followed her onto the roof and peered over the roofline, making for a scene straight out of a nightmare or horror movie.
Photos of the incident went viral on social media:

Police arrived on the scene to help Rivera off the roof and arrest the intruder.
I bet if she would have had a gun, the intruder would have been gone in a heartbeat.
