A Michigan woman was injured and assaulted during a terrifying early morning home invasion, but the situation could’ve been even worse if it hadn’t been for her dog.

Kim Nuoffer and her 1-year-old child were asleep when a still-unidentified man broke into her Redford, Michigan, home at 5 a.m. on Wednesday morning, Click on Detroit reports. The man broke her bedroom window and climbed inside where he yelled at Nuoffer to get on the ground. When she refused, that’s when Nuoffer said the man hit her in the face with his gun.

“I was calling for my dog as I was trying to keep him away from me,” she told Click on Detroit.

When the man heard Nuoffer’s dog — an 85-pound Pit Bull named Monkey — he fled. He has yet to be apprehended. Nuoffer suffered minor head injuries, but none of her four children were harmed. Neither was Monkey.
