A grandmother in Granite Falls wakes up to an intruder looming at the foot of her bed. He's armed with a knife and demanding jewelry, money and gold -- the beginning to a night of terror at the hands of convicted felon, Cody Chapin.

The victim's two-year-old grandaughter was also in the home. Chapin lied that he'd tied her up. Her grandma believed him -- just like she believed Chapin was going to kill her right in front of her granddaughter -- either with the knife he showed, or the gun he threatened to have.

Chapin chased her down a hallway before leaving the house and getting caught by a K9 unit.

All Chapin got away with in the home invasion was $20 from the victim's purse and nine silver coins she had on a shelf.
