    INDIANAPOLIS -- A man who police said broke into a home with the intention of sexually assault a 17-year-old girl in her bedroom died early Sunday morning after a struggle with the girl's father.

    David Meyers (pictured), 52, was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after officers arrived following a report of a home invasion in the 3500 block of West 79th Street at about 3:20 a.m.

    Officers said they found Robert McNally, 64, on the floor with his arm around the neck of Meyers, struggling to hold him down.




    When officers told McNally he could let go, they found that Meyers was unresponsive. Medics who were called to the scene then pronounced Meyers dead.

    Indianapolis police Sgt. Matt Mount said Meyers had come into the home naked, except for a mask and latex gloves.

    "He had rope, had a knife, had condoms, had a gag," Mount said.

    Police said Meyers had gotten into the home through a window next to the girl's bedroom and that he knew the home well because his uncle owns it and he was an acquaintance of the family.

    The teen awoke to find a naked man in her room and began screaming, alerting McNally, police said.

    During a protracted struggle in the hallway of the home, McNally was able to get his arm around Meyers' neck and subdue him while his wife called police, officers said.

    Meyers was a registered sex offender and was released from prison two years ago after he had served 10 years of a 20-year sentence for criminal confinement and sexual deviate conduct stemming from a case in Hamilton County.

    Meyers was also being sought in Boone County for failure to register as a sex offender.

    Police said Meyers had been living with his mother down a gravel road from the home that the McNally family lived in and had recently lost his job.

    "When they got the mask off, both the father and daughter recognized him," Mount said.

    Police said Meyers had a history of heart problems. They were not immediately sure if he died as a result of heart failure or from being choked.

    The results of the police investigation will be turned over to the Marion County Prosecutor's Office, but it is unlikely charges will be filed, police said.

    Freak!.

    That's about 7 miles from where I live. It's all the talk here in Indy.

    Tell you what, as a mother of a 13 year old girl, it's a scary world out there. I need to go buy a taser or something.
