This is how you turn the tables on a home intruder! An 82-year-old female bodybuilder used various household items — including a table, shampoo and a broom — to take down a man who broke into her home in Rochester, NY.
“He picked the wrong house to break into,” Willie Murphy told local station WHAM. Murphy was getting ready for bed around 11 p.m.
Thursday when a man started pounding on her door, saying “I’m sick, I’m sick.” When she called the officer and wouldn’t let him inside, the man broke down the door, Murphy said.
So she grabbed the closest thing she could find to defend herself — which happened to be a table with metal legs. “I took that table and I went to working on him,” Murphy said.
“The table broke.” “And when he’s down,” she continued, “I’m jumping on him.” Then, she grabbed a bottle of shampoo and emptied “the whole thing” on his face while he was on the ground, she said.
After that, “I got the broom.” “He’s pulling the broom. I’m smacking him with the broom.” When officer arrived, the man was taken to the medical centre, and Murphy applauded as a star.
