An elderly woman in Texas used a stick and a pot of boiling water to fight off an intruder.

A man broke into Lillie McClendon’s home in Houston early Sunday morning and demanded money, according to local TV station KTRK.

The 83-year-old said she fought him off with the only weapons she had available.

“I got this stick, McClendon told KTRK.” “I had some sausage on the stove. I poured that water on him. I told him … ‘what kind of momma you got that raised you up like this. You ought to be ashamed of yourself.'”

The intruder managed to get away, but McClendon’s family said they’re just relieved she wasn’t injured.
