One less child predator

Talk about a rear naked choke

One less LITTLE PREV running the streets.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - An intruder is dead after breaking into a northwest side home early Sunday morning.

His intended victim was a 17-year-old girl. Investigators say the girl's dad fought off 52-year-old David Meyers who turned out to be a registered sex offender. When police found Meyers he was in a choke hold inside a home on West 79th Street.

"He did not accomplish what his objective was," said Sgt. Matt Mount of the Indianapolis Metro Police Department.

Paramedics pronounced Meyers dead inside the house early Sunday morning.

"He had served a 10 year of a 20 year sentence for criminal confinement and sexual deviate conduct," said Sgt. Mount.

Before Meyers died he allegedly broke into the home. What police say he had on him is puzzling. According to police, the intruder had gained access into the house through a window next to the intended victim's bedroom. Police also say he wasn't wearing clothing except for a mask and latex gloves.

"He had in his possession a knife, some rope, some condoms," said Sgt. Mount.

Investigators say Meyers even made it to his intended victim's bedroom.

"She awoke, saw this naked man in the bedroom with the mask on. She started screaming," said Sgt. Mount.

Police say the 17-year-old girl's father heard her screams and ran to her help.

"His wife called 911 and that's when the police arrived and found him on the floor with his arm around the neck of Mr. Meyers struggling, holding him down," said Sgt. Mount.

Investigators say when the homeowner removed Meyers' mask, he recognized him.

"He was the nephew of the homeowner they were renting the home from. So he was familiar with the floor plan of the house," said Sgt. Mount.

Police started to put handcuffs on Meyers, but they realized he was not breathing.

"Don't know whether it was a heart attack or asphyxiation from the choke hold that was put on him," explained Sgt. Mount. "What could have been a very tragic situation for a 17-year-old girl has turned into the death of the assailant."

Police are calling Meyers' death a homicide, but say most likely no charges will be filed.

Meyers was wanted in Boone County for failure to register as a sex offender. Investigators say he was not registered in Marion County. The prosecutor will review the case Monday.
