(CNN) - A disabled Indiana woman refused to be a victim when a burglar forced his way into her home and the weapon she used to defend herself -- might surprise you!
Patty Kearney and her husband were watching TV when they heard the glass in their back door shatter.
The intruder confronted the couple and demanded any guns they might have.
When patty realized the robber didn't have a gun himself, she sprung into action -- with a wooden back scratcher!
"And I said no and I looked at him and said, do you have a gun? And he said no, and I don't know what happened. I snapped... I don't think he expected an overweight woman on oxygen to attack him; I really don't.
The crook ran away after patty's back-scratcher beating.
Police are still looking for the burglar, but they say he didn't take anything from the victims' home.
