Deaf woman slept through five-hour gun siege 21.07.07 Add your view After laying siege to a house for five hours, police gave a final warning before storming the house where a gunman had been reported inside. A police dog rushed upstairs and, finding a woman in bed, proceeded to sink its teeth into her arms. But as armed officers surrounded a terrified Sonia Pellow, they realised two things. First, she wasn't a gunman. Second, she was deaf and had been sleeping throughout the entire stand-off. Yesterday Miss Pellow, 36, was still too afraid to return to her home in Hayle, Cornwall, after the ordeal, which followed a hoax call to police that a gunman was inside. "I don't know what happened - I was asleep but then this dog was all over me," she said. "I got bitten on both of my arms. I was terrified." Her father Esmond, 67, added: "Sonia is hard of hearing and is also very difficult to wake up once she is asleep. It looks like she was attacked by a crocodile, not a dog." Miss Pellow was arrested on suspicion of unlawfully possessing a firearm but released without charge. A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said the matter would be investigated if she made a complaint. He added: "Police negotiators had been at the scene trying to make contact with anyone inside the house for several hours." ---- Thats gotta be worth a couple million.
