A mother and her three children were terrorized late one night when a strange man barged into their house in the middle of a snowstorm. Just outside Boston, 39-year-old Ricardo Francis was driving by the home when his car slid off the roadway during the storm, crashing into a vehicle parked at the end of the family's driveway.
His next move is inexplicable... Francis then broke into the home, wielding a knife. He assaulted the mother and threatened the family. He can be heard screaming and shouting in the background of these chilling 911 calls.
Fortunately for this family, a police officer showed up at the home and subdued the suspect, taking him into custody. When Police Officer Richard Derry arrived at the scene, the suspect was stabbing his knife into the door of a closet where at least one of the children was hiding.
Police have confirmed that the suspect did not know the victims. Francis is charged with armed home invasion and multiple felony charges.
