    Well, I'm so sorry this happened to her. My very first question, however, is WHY DID SHE OPEN THE DOOR??? If you come by my house I will not be opening the door to you if I don't know you are stopping over. OH well, I suppose its just as likely that had she ignored him, he may have broken in, which could have made the situation worse, but you never know.
