Police: Threatening Texts Came Before Break-in

CORPUS CHRISTI - An extremely scary situation last night for a woman who awoke to a man with a knife to her throat.

She told police a man she knows had recently started sending her threatening and demeaning text messages. Last night, she fell asleep while her husband left their Reid Drive apartment for a quick trip to the store.

Not long afterwards she woke up to find the man in her home. She immediately started screaming as loud as possible. Her husband came home and got into a struggle with the man.

The husband has cuts to his arm and face from the fight.

Police tracked down the alleged attacker, 49-year old Anthony Leon, at his place on Crescent Street. He's charged with burglary and aggravated assault.
