  • The brick smashed through the door to the home ending up on the floor of the kitchen

The Goochland County sheriff said Skinner was found with duct tape, pepper spray and a camouflage folding clip knife with a 7cm blade.

The FBI was also involved in the investigation, she said.

Troy George Skinner, 25, was shot in the neck by the girl's mother after smashing his way through a glass door.

A roommate tells the New Zealand Herald Skinner was "quiet" and "rational", but a friend tells WTVR he had been on antipsychotic medication and had been seeing psychiatrists, theorizing the man had "a mental break".

It was virtually "impossible" to access information from secure wards like the one where Skinner was being treated, the man said.

He will have a bond hearing today or tomorrow, she said.

The mother, whom the sheriff's office did not identify, was at home painting with her two teenage daughters as the man trudged along.

It was around this time that the sheriff's office received a second 911 call, from the woman's husband, who reported his wife had called him about a man dressed in black who was trying to enter their home.

Before he arrived at her doorstep in Goochland in the middle of the afternoon Friday, Agnew said Skinner stopped at a Walmart to purchase a pocket knife.

When he arrived at the family's home, he yelled that he had hitchhiked 30 miles to the house and needed help.

"[The attack] was pretty hard to fathom", Agnew said.

He is now fighting for his life after being shot in the neck by the girl's mother.

"He is not the victim, that lady and her family members are the victims".

New Zealand Police are aware of the incident and will assist the US Authorities as necessary.

"They are pursuing federal charges related to contacting" the girl, the sheriff said.

He is expected to survive his injuries. He said the 14-year-old teen did not know Skinner was flying to see her, and she had not provided him her address.

Investigators believe Skinner's actions were part of a clearly planned trip from New Zealand, local news outlet the Times-Dispatch reports.

The Goochland County sheriff said Skinner bought a knife and duct tape after his arrival in the United States late on Wednesday, and had pepper spray on him.

After three or four months of chatting, the girl tried to end their communication according to Fox8.

Skinner was transported via Med-Flight to the hospital in critical condition.

Skinner had entered the U.S. last Wednesday at Los Angeles International Airport. "This 6-foot-1-inch, 275-pound man attempted to violently get inside her house".

Skinner then flew from New Zealand to Australia, Australia to Los Angeles, and Los Angeles to Washington D.C. From D.C., he took a Greyhound bus to Richmond.

He soon started trying to get inside the house himself, eventually grabbing a brick and trying to break down a glass door, police say in a press release.
