Murphy says she hid as the suspect walked through her house. At some point, she grabbed a nearby table.

"I took that table and I went to working on him," she said. "And guess what? The table broke."

The man fell to the floor.

"And when he's down," she continued, "I'm jumping on him."

Murphy says once the suspect was down, she ran and grabbed a bottle of shampoo and squirted it on the man's face as he tried to get up. Next, she started whacking him with a broom.

"He picked the wrong house to break into," Murphy said...

Murphy says she does not plan to press charges.

I keep small, youth-sized, aluminum baseball bats placed strategically hidden around my house.

The good news for a would-be burglar at my house: You're going to live to face trial.

The bad news: I'm going to beat the ---- outta you.

I don't know you but you better hope they don't take it away from you.

I say good for her but this woman is in extremely good shape, strong and lucky the dude was drunk. My Grandmother did something similar when she was in her late 70s while they held my grandfather at knife point. There was three of them and she only annoyed them - thankfully they only took the items she was using away from her. Police caught them a few blocks away as the neighbor chased them through the alley and gave them a car description and plate.
