An 82-year-old woman found herself in danger last week when a man tried to break into her home when she was getting ready for bed.

While she was trying to get ready for bed one night last week the woman heard a man pounding on her door.  He was saying that he was sick and needed help so the woman called police but wouldn’t let him in.  That made him angry and he eventually broke her door and entered her house.

The man that entered her home soon realized he picked the wrong house!  She was an award-winning bodybuilder who works out at the YMCA almost every day. She hid in the dark and then attacked when she had a chance.  She used a table to beat him up as well as shampoo and a broom to keep the intruder down until cops arrived.
