Attack in the Night
How safe is your neighborhood? How secure is your home? On a quiet night in mid-May in beautiful Orange County, California, a couple was viciously attacked by a man with a hatchet while they slept in their bed.
Greg, Estela and their family lived in an ideal beach community, in what they believed to be a safe neighborhood, and a safe home. Their world crashed around them one night when an intruder chopped his way into their home.
Greg and Estela each credit the other for their survival, and their love is stronger than ever, but they struggle to rebuild their lives while in constant fear.
Greg and Estela haven't stepped inside their house at night since they vacated after the attack. Dr. Phil leads them back inside and traces the path of the intruder.
Billy and Anne Marie were there when their friends needed them, but now find themselves impacted by fear as well. Dr. Phil meets with the neighbors to see how they are dealing with the anxiety while trying to take back their neighborhood.
A private investigator who has helped bring numerous fugitives to justice surveys the crime scene and gives his thoughts about the intruder's escape and the kind of person involved.
