A Montgomery woman is hopitalized and a suspect is in custody after a violent Thursday morning in southwest Montgomery.

It happened just about around 11:00 a.m. in a mobile home park on Bruner Driver. That's just off South Court Street. Police say a woman was raped and went to a neighbors trailer to call for help when her assailant broke in, beat her up using a cordless drill and then crashed this van into the neighbors home.

Lt. Huey Thornton of the Montgomery Police Department says, "When officers arrived on the scene, the van was in the residence and the driver was inside the van attempting to back out. That's when the officers thought they were about to be struck by the van."

Neighbors say the suspect yelled at the officers to shoot him, but he was taken into custody and now faces numerous charges.
