A Las Vegas man was arrested and charged after he was captured on Ring doorbell camera politely threatening to rape and kill a woman inside her home.

Amanda Nowak was at home alone Wednesday evening when a bearded man knocked on her door and said, "I just have a couple of questions for you."

The Ring video shows the man repeatedly knocking on her door and asking, "Are you sure? Are you positive? Are you absolutely sure," when she declined to open the door.

He eventually walked away but he returned when Nowak's husband, who was not at home, spoke remotely through the Ring intercom.

The suspect politely said, "What I'm looking for is the girl in the house 'cause I'm going to rape her and kill her. Can you have her open the door?"

He added he had a gun and knife.

Nowak called 911 and police arrived moments later, but the suspect had left the scene.

A viewer who saw the report recognized the man and alerted a nearby deputy city marshal, FOX5 reported.

"HE IS IN CUSTODY!" Nowak wrote on Facebook the next day.

The suspect was charged with stalking, coercion and obstructing an officer. He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center as "John Doe."

Police said Nowak did the right thing by not opening the door.

Richmond County Sheriff's Office

An Augusta woman who was wanted for assaulting another woman in a Little Caesars restaurant has been caught by police.

Kennedy assaulted 22-year-old Emily Broadwater at a Little Caesar Pizza at 3221 Wrightsboro Road in Augusta on May 17.

Cellphone footage shows Kennedy grabbing the victim's hair, dragging her across the floor and repeatedly punching her as Broadwater's 3-year-old daughter cried.

The victim suffered bruises, facial lacerations, a black eye and a cut lip.

Both women took to Facebook to explain their side of the story. Broadwater said she previously cared for Kennedy's three children while she was in prison.

Broadwater currently dates the father of Kennedy's children. He is the father of Broadwater's toddler.

"All I did was help a friend out with his kids while his baby mama was locked up. She has been harassing me for weeks now," Broadwater wrote on Facebook.

The manhunt for former Austin sheriff's detective Stephen Broderick ended with his arrest on Monday morning.

He was arrested without incident after motorists spotted a suspicious man walking along a highway at 7:30 a.m.

As he was placed in handcuffs, police removed a loaded handgun from his waistband.

Broderick, 41, was wanted in the shooting deaths of his ex-wife, Amanda Broderick, their adopted teenage daughter, Alyssa, and the girl's boyfriend, Willie Simmons III, 18.

Travis County court records shows Amanda Broderick, 34, filed for a restraining order in June 2020 after her daughter, Alyssa, 17, accused her father of touching her inappropriately.

Alyssa said Broderick had raped her repeatedly in the past. The protective order was approved by a judge about three weeks after Amanda first accused Broderick of raping Alyssa.

In her application, Amanda (pictured) said she was "afraid he will try to hurt me and my children." She said Broderick was "SWAT trained" and "If he wanted to hurt someone, he would know how."

In June 2020, three days after the alleged rape, U.S. Marshals arrested Broderick. He was booked into the Travis County Jail, where he spent 16 days before posting a bail of $50,000.

The former Travis County sheriff's detective was placed on administrative leave. He later lost his job.

A judge ordered him to wear a GPS ankle monitor and he was prohibited from possessing firearms, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by KXAN News.

Broderick was prohibited from contacting or going within 200 yards of the teenager.

In court documents, Alyssa said she was afraid that "a protective order will be just a piece of paper" to her father.

In November, a judge ordered the ankle monitor to be removed. Broderick's lawyer argued that his client wore the GPS monitor for nearly 150 days with no violations.

On Sunday, Broderick arranged a meeting with Amanda for a scheduled visit with the couple's minor son. Broderick rammed his car into Amanda's vehicle at an apartment complex in northwest Austin.

Broderick fired multiple shots, killing all three victims, before fleeing the scene on foot, police said in a statement.

Responding officers found the three victims with gunshot wounds lying near the two vehicles. They were pronounced dead at the scene.

The couple's minor son was not injured. A witness removed the boy from the scene and turned him over to Austin police officers.

Atlanta PD, FOX 5, Rep. Masha Maison

A man accused of stalking state Representative Mesha Mainor lashed out at her in alarming jailhouse phone calls.

The FOX 5 I-Team obtained recordings of the jailhouse phone calls through the Georgia Open Records Act.

In 2019, Mainor was running for Atlanta City Council when she told a volunteer campaign volunteer he could no longer work for her.

The campaign volunteer -- Corwin Monson -- launched a campaign of harassment against Mainor that included calling her hundreds of times a day and leaving frightening voicemail messages.

"It became frightening,” she told Atlanta Progressive News. "By May, he was dropping gifts off at my house because he couldn't talk to me."

Mainor filed a restraining order against Monson in July 2019. She told a judge Monson joined her church to be close to her. He showed up to her home an average of 2-3 times a week.

The judge granted her request for a restraining order. Weeks later, Mainor filed a police report, claiming Monson "violated a restraining order" and showed up at her church, Friendship Baptist, "sitting in the church just looking at her."

Police arrested Monson and charged him with felony aggravated stalking. He was released on bond, FOX 5 News reports.

Monson was arrested again a year later on another aggravated stalking charge for contacting Mainor through her Facebook page.

Monson was locked up again in December 2020. He remains in jail, awaiting trial.

"Praise God, he is in jail. I feel a little bit safer," said Mainor, who was sworn in as the new state representative from the 59th District in Atlanta a month later.

But Monson's phone calls continued even after he was locked up and denied bail.

"I don't want that bitch being no state representative. Keep that b**** out of the State House. Now, let's play hardball," Monson said on one jail house call.

On one of the calls, Monson said he will stay in prison for ten years if he has to get back at her. "I want that b**** shutdown," he said.

"The fact that he would say he would stay in jail for 10 years out of sheer hatred for me. That's crazy. If a judge lets him out, what do you think he's going to do to me," Mainor told The FOX I-Team.

In another conversation, Monson tells his wife, he wants Representative Mainor criminally charged with theft and perjury for allegedly stealing his lawn furniture.

Commissioner Marvin Arrington Jr. withdrew as Monson's attorney, after Mainor filed an ethics complaint and a bar complaint against him on Oct. 21, 2020.

A Chicago woman is behind bars after she boarded a plane without a ticket to meet Beyonce's husband, Jay Z.

Yaazmina Payton, 23, was able to slip past airport security at two checkpoints and board an American Airlines flight to LAX without a ticket.

A witness at O'Hare International Airport alerted security when she observed Payton duck under the ropes at the boarding door.

Payton was charged with felony criminal trespass, according to the Chicago Tribune.

She told police she planned to fly to Los Angeles to meet the 50-year-old semi-retired rapper.

Payton's court-appointed attorney said his client suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety disorder, and was suffering an emotional break when she illegally boarded the plane.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has launched an investigation into the security lapses at the airport that enabled Payton to get on the plane without detection.
