A homeowner repeatedly struck a woman on the head with a piece of metal Sunday morning, when the woman reportedly broke into a home in a gated far North Side community.

The woman, in her early 20s, began ringing the doorbell and banging on a door in the 8400 block of Magdalena Run around 8 a.m. Sunday, said San Antonio police Sgt. Michael Oliva.

Police said she appeared to have been up all night, under the influence of drugs or alcohol and was yelling that birds were in her house, while wearing all-black and ringing the doorbell, according to an incident report.
