A Cochise County woman was beaten after she surprised a burglar at her boyfriend’s home Monday morning.

The woman was talking on the telephone with her boyfriend as she pulled up to his house about 25 miles south of Willcox. She said a pickup truck was parked outside his house, a spokesperson for the Cochise County Sheriff’s Department said in an online news release.

When the woman went inside the home, she saw a man trying to take a flat screen television off the wall. When the thief saw her, he threw an object at her before jumping on her and knocking her to the floor. The victim advised that the male subject physically assaulted her before leaving her at the home,” the news release stated.

The boyfriend, who was in Tucson, “heard her scream and the phone went dead.”

He called 911 after trying to call her back without success.

Sheriff's Deputies arrived at the home and discovered the 34-year-old woman lying on living room floor. Before she was taken to the hospital, the victim told deputies that when she arrived at the home around 10 a.m., she saw “a red, faded newer model Dodge truck with a distinctive rear bumper accessory with the appearance of bull testicles backed up to the back door of the home,” according to the release.

The attacker was described as a white man in his 40s, about 5-feet-10 to 6-feet tall with a stocky build. He had brown and grey hair and was wearing a black tank top and jeans.

Anyone with information about the suspect should call 911, 88-CRIME, or the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office at 520-432-9500. All information received will remain confidential.
