WATCH: Shocking home invasion in Hudson
Residents of a quiet community in Hudson are in shock after a home invasion early Sunday morning.
It all happened at about 2:00 A.M. on Pine St.
Two men walk up to a door, one of them kicks it until it busts open and then they rush inside. Seconds after the men enter the home you can hear a woman scream.
"All of a sudden there were these two guys in my face, covering my mouth, chocking me, gagging me, bringing me down, said Natalie Poirier, in an interview with Andrew Carter on CJAD 800 Monday morning"
She posted security camera footage showing the men breaking into her home to Facebook.
"I am in complete shock," she wrote. "[Two men] kicked my front door in and attacked me. They were looking for cash."
She says the loud bang of her door being kicked in woke her up. She went to check on her dog only to find two men standing in her home. She said one grabbed her by the throat and pinned her to the ground. Poirier said they spoke French and demanded to know where she kept her money.
From there she described her attempts to fight back, which included biting the suspect.
"Something snapped inside me," she said. "I thought, how dare they come into my house and do this to me."
She said she offered to get her wallet from the kitchen, but once free she escaped through the side door and ran down the street until she found a neighbour. The woman, who just moved to the area, stayed with Poirier until police arrived.
The Sûreté du Québec's major crimes unit has taken over the case.
Poirier had previously called police, two weeks earlier, after her security cameras caught two men walking around her property, looking into her home.
It's not yet known if the home invaders are the same men caught in the earlier video.
Police say there is no risk to safety in the area.
Since posting the videos Poirier has received hundreds of messages of support, and the clips have been shared a couple thousand times.
