ATLANTAA man tried to attack a mother and force his way into her residence while her daughter was a few meters away. It happened Saturday at a home along Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard near Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway in northwest Atlanta. Everything was captured by home surveillance video.

Tarzine Jackson says she was working at her desk. “I heard some commotion on the side of the house,” Jackson said.

He looked outside and saw a stranger drinking water from the tap on the side of his house. She told him to stop and even offered him something to drink. “I’ll give you a bottle of water,” she recalled telling the man.

However, the boy became angry. “He starts cursing at me and comes to the front of the porch. I just say, ‘What are you doing?'” he said.

He then tried to enter his house. “He tried to break down the front door,” Jackson said.

The man grabbed the cat scratching post on his front porch and broke the front window. “He threw it out the window and there was glass everywhere,” Jackson said.

Shards of glass grazed his 16-year-old daughter. That infuriated Jackson. “I went into mommy-bear mode and went after him,” Jackson said.

Jackson ran out with a Taser wand. “She tried to grab him and got an electric shock on her hand,” Jackson said.

Jackson says several neighbors eventually chased him away. Police arrested Anthony Dixon a short time later. “There was a lot of adrenaline. If you do fucking things, now you’ll find out,” Jackson said.
