95-Year-Old Woman on a Wheel Chair Foiled a Burglary with a Screwdriver

Meet 46-year-old Robert Horsley, who tried to burgle a house and foiled by a 95-year-old woman in a wheelchair armed with only a screwdriver:

It was 3 a.m. when a 95-year-old Bartlesville woman heard somebody break the glass on her front door and push the door open. When a hand came inside and tried to unlock the door, she stabbed it. Again and again.

She stabbed that hand many times over the next hour, say Bartlesville Police. The woman would not leave the door for fear the man would break in while she was calling for help. Eventually, the man gave up.

When police arrived, they found the bloody suspect passed out on the front porch with dozens of stab wounds to his lower arms and hands.

"What do you tell your friends in jail about where did you get those wounds, asks a neighbor, Gerri Lynn Grindle. "I don't know that he's going to tell anybody he got them from a little old lady confined to a wheel chair."

She's more than twice his age... and more than twice as smart. This guy would probably keep touching a hot stove if he thought there was something to be gained from it.

that poor woman must have been terrified. i mean, it's a funny scene to imagine - but if you really think about it, it must have been awful for her.

very funny on his side though - what kind of idiot lets his hand get stabbed for an hour?
