Deputies say a man wearing a mask and brandishing a gun entered his ex-wife's north Florida home, but was quickly disarmed by her sister.
He confronted 27-year-old Carol Dickman early Sunday.
The Ocala Star-Banner reports Dickman quickly realized it was her ex-husband, 37-year-old Willie Allen Bias Sr. She asked if he wanted to go outside and talk. But according to a Marion County Sheriff's Office statement, Bias told Dickman he was going to kill her.
Deputies say Dickman's 21-year-old sister Ashley Falck and 51-year-old mother Lucy Falck heard the commotion. The sister rushed Bias from behind and took the gun, while her mother grabbed her own gun, put it to Bias' head and told him to get out or "I'm going to kill you."
He fled but was later caught and now faces multiple charges.
