The Virginia woman who broke into a family’s new home, wearing no clothes and claiming to be the devil, has been arrested and charged with assault and battery, malicious wounding and breaking and entering. The family is still traumatized from the incident as they believe the woman, who seemed “possessed,” wanted to kill them.
The intruder has been identified as Ryan Doss, 29, of North Chesterfield. She is being held in the Chesterfield County Jail and is expected to undergo a mental health evaluation.
The incident took place on the Fourth of July, the first night that the Lewis family was staying in the home. Much to their surprise, they discovered a naked woman with a blue ponytail who refused to leave.
“I said, ‘Who are you?’” Mr. Lewis recalled to reporters. “She said, ‘I need your help. Please help me.’ I said, ‘Get out of my house,’ and she goes, ‘I’m the devil.’”
He said that the woman “looked possessed, her eyes were completely black, like saucers, and she was laughing like it was a joke.”
Lewis tried to scare the woman away, firing all the rounds he had in his possession — 39 in all — as warning shots, and also issuing verbal warnings. But instead of frightening the woman, she rather charged at him.
“She was not stopping,” he told local television station WRIC. “She had the strength of four grown men.”
