A Tulsa woman who's losing her eyesight had almost lost her faith in people after thieves broke into her home multiple times. She saidone even threatened to rape her.

FOX23 first told you about Barbara Bauzers last week.

"I heard him unzip his pants," saidBauzers. "He said I just might rape you."

Bauzers, 68, lives alone and she is going blind.

She said she escaped unharmed, but earlier in the week thieves broke into her home and stole her medicine.

"I didn't hear anything," said Bauzers.

Her security system was nothing more than a trash bag full of cans against her door to let her know someone was coming in.

But less than a week later, help arrived.

"I'm happy that there's people who care," said Bauzers.

Cox Communications heard about Bauzers and decided to give her a real system.

"We all deserve to feel safe and secure inside the walls of our own home," said Tiffani Bruton with Cox Communications.

"I don't want to cry," said Bauzers.

At least this time they're happy tears, unlike last month.

Bauzers is not able to give accurate physical descriptions because she's going blind. But now that doesn't matter: She has a camera and everything is recorded.

Installers did more than secure her home; they've armed her with new confidence.

"I always feel like if you do something nice for someone and good will come back to you," said Bauzers.
