A Conroe woman was on the verge of being raped inside her home, but she said a few words to her attacker that caused him to change course.

It happened at the woman's apartment on Gladstell near I-45. Investigators say the woman woke up to find a masked man in her bed. Speaking with a Honduran accent, the man told the woman he would rape her.

"He had a knife in his hand, indicated what his intentions were and instructed her to remove some of her clothing, which she did because she was afraid," said an investigator in the case.

The woman told the man she was on her period. He fondled her and then left.

Anyone with information about this is urged to call Conroe police.
