A burglar is presenting rueing the moment he chose to attack the home of 82-year-old grandmother, who – unfortunately for the thief – is an award-winning bodybuilder.
Granny Willie Murphy, who still works out daily, gave the thief the beating of his life.
According to reports, the incident happened at Rochester, New York.
Murphy told reporters she was getting ready to retire for the day when she heard someone pounding at her door, and begging her to help him place a call to an ambulance service.
The octogenarian placed a call to the police and held back on opening the door for the man. Running out of patience and not knowing that Murphy was not just a soft and fragile granny, the thief broke down the door.
Granny Murphy said she used a barrage of household items to attack the intruder and prevented him from getting into her apartment.
She said she started by throwing her table at the burglar.
“I took that table and I went to working on him,” she stated.
“And guess what? The table broke.”
Granny said she used the legs of the table to hit him and she didn’t stop there.
She ran into her kitchen, took shampoo and squirted it on his face while he struggled to make it back on his feet. Granny, however, whacked him some more with a broom.
Seeing that he evidently chose the wrong house to rub, the intruder was ready to flee from Murphy’s house.
“He wants to get the heck out of there. And I’m trying to help him get out of the house, but he’s too heavy. I can’t move him. He’s dead weight,” she stated.
Fortunately, the cops arrived in response to the disturbing call Granny Murphy had made earlier on.
