NEDERLAND, CO (WFLX) -  A woman is reportedly stabbed in her home by someone wearing the mask from the movie 'Scream'.

According to police, the woman heard a knock on the door. She thought it was Trick-or-Treaters. But when she answered, a masked intruder pulled out a knife.

She was cut on her face and arms, pinned to the ground, but saved by her three dogs. "She believes the dogs startled him. At that point, he got up off of her and exited the house," said a Nederland officer.

The woman has been released from the hospital, and authorities are trying to find out if the attack was planned or random.
