Some suburban Memphis teens spent an evening earlier week at a friend’s house goofing off, stealthily drinking some beer, and doing whatever else it is that teen males do with one another.
That’s when things take a turn toward the weird.
As soon as her son’s friends arrived, Mom grabbed all the alcohol in the house and barricaded herself in her bedroom. No one was being too rowdy, but her Spidey senses were apparently tingling as something seemed off to her…so, she figured it was best to steer clear.
At 2:30am, Mom is awakened by the sound of one of the boys, 18-year-old Jordan Corter, knocking on her bedroom door. Concerned that he might need help, she opened the door, and Jordan “forced himself into the bedroom and locked the door behind him.”
According to Mom, whose identity hasn’t been released, Corter then pushed her onto the bed, put his hand down her shorts and attempted to rape her. After a struggle that resulted in a black eye for the woman, she was able to access a handgun and got him to back off. Fortunately for Jordan, she didn’t pull the trigger.
What a night.
Mom should’ve called the police immediately after this incident, but, inexplicably, she didn’t do that. The police weren’t informed of the altercation until the next morning when her boss noticed the black eye and persuaded her to file a police report.
When journalists visited the Corter home, they were greeted by his step-grandfather, who said only that Jordan had just graduated from high school and was a good kid.
“You have to watch who you let in your house, I guess,” a neighbor advised.
