This is absolutely horrifying.

Two sisters are recounting to the media a violent event that happened earlier this week in the Utah home that they shared, and the story is so scary in so many ways.

The sisters, Bre and Kayli Lasley, spoke to reporters about the horrifying attacks they endured from violent criminal Robert Berger, as well as revealing details about the police officer who saved their lives when he shot Berger in the head — and this story is like something out of a movie.

It all started late Wednesday night, when Bre was preparing to go to bed, and heard a noise at her bedroom window, which was Berger breaking in:

“He whispered and said, ‘I’m going to kill you.’ I heard a voice and he just said, ‘Hey girl, I’m coming in your room.’ He put his left arm over my mouth and started punching me in the stomach and he said, ‘you cooperate with me or I’m going downstairs to get your little sister.'”

Bre struggled enough with the man that sister Kayli was alerted, and she came running upstairs to find her sister struggling with the man.

“I had run up the stairs and we were in the kitchen, kind of trying to fight him off I guess.”

Berger then kicked Kayli back down the stairs, sending her head crashing through the wall as he continued to struggle with Bre.

At that point, rather than attack Kayli, Bre took on Berger — until he started stabbing her, according to sister Kayli:

“As I’m running up the stairs I hear her saying, ‘he’s stabbing me, he’s stabbing me.'”

Berger made his plans with Bre very clear, but something would interrupt Berger’s senseless rampage:

“He was kneeling on top of me and he was kneeling on both of my arms and he pulled his knife up and he told me he was going to kill me. That’s when I saw the officer and he was our angel. I looked at the officer and his eyes and he was so professional and calm and I said, ‘officer, he’s going to kill me!'”

According to the girls, after three warnings to the man to put down the knife, the officer fired a single shot, hitting Berger in the head and stopping the attack immediately. Bre recognized the incredible timing of the officer’s arrival:

“I felt the suspect tighten as if he’s going to cut me and that’s when the officer took his life and saved mine.”

Apparently, the responding officer was already in the area because Berger had tried to break into another home just before that, and was forced away by the family in that first home, who then called 9-1-1 to alert police of the intruder in the neighborhood.

Berger, who had a criminal history dating back to 1986, was recently arrested for aggravated robbery and attempted theft, though he had been paroled just two weeks before this incident. At the time, he was considered a fugitive from the law, and had an active warrant out for his arrest.

At least he’s now been taken care of, and the two girls are safe and recovering with family.
