This is the terrifying moment a pickaxe-wielding woman smashed through the windows of her neighbor’s Pasadena home just inches from a newborn baby.  

Beverly Baker, 65, was caught wielding the weapon in the horrifying attack yesterday. 

She was filmed by Arman Tchoukadrian’s Ring camera approaching the home then smashing through its windows before walking away and returning again to smash more. 

Baker then started matching back to her own home a few blocks away. On her way there, she yelled: ‘I’ll be back! Get out!’  

Tchoukadrian’s mother-in-law was in the home with his baby daughter, who was sleeping in a bassinet near one of the windows. 

He says the baby would have been seriously injured if her grandmother hadn’t saved her. 

Exactly what caused Baker’s outburst remains unclear. 

She is being held in custody and is due in court this morning. Records show she lives across the street from Tchoukadrian, who is a doctor.

Tchoukadrian says she owns multiple properties in the area – including one on his street – but that he had never seen her before. He fears he was the target of a racist attack because he is Armenian, but police are yet to confirm the woman’s motive.

Investigators say Baker may have been suffering from mental illness, though that is not confirmed. Homeowner Arman Tchoukadarian says his baby might have been seriously injured if his mother-in-law hadn't been there

It comes amid skyrocketing crime in LA, with the total number of violent crimes up 4.2 per cent. 

Arman Tchoukadarian said that he feels like the family ‘lost their safe place’ in the incident.

The homeowner estimates that about $20,000 worth of damage was done to the house during the attack.

His mother-in-law was alone with the baby when Baker brazenly walked up to the property with the large weapon.

She managed to snatch the baby away from the window just before it was shattered, before Baker returned to the scene.

Tchoukadarian told KTLA: ‘If my mother-in-law didn’t act as fast as she did, my daughter wouldn’t be here.

‘She broke one window, went back. My mother-in-law came out screaming and yelling to get my attention.

‘Police found her, nonchalant, walking with a pickaxe on her back, like she’d just finished working with it.’

Baker returned multiple times, with the pickaxe swung over her shoulder, shouting: ‘Questions? Questions anyone? I’ll be back, get out.’

Investigators say Baker may have been suffering from mental illness, though that is not confirmed.

Baker refused to surrender for around half an hour but was eventually taken into custody and faces charges of felony vandalism.

Tchoukadarian said his family has been traumatized by the ordeal, adding: ‘She needs to be in the right place, getting the right help.

‘That’s no excuse to go attack someone’s family, attack someone’s newborn and ruin their dream home, and ruin their life and sanity.’
