What may have begun as a typical day in the life of 82-year-old Wille Murphy ended by her putting a young intruder in the hospital.YouTube Screenshot Source: YouTube Screenshot
As Willie was preparing to turn in for the night she heard a man knocking on her door. He was frantically crying outside her door stating that he was sick and needed an ambulance. However, Willie’s instincts kicked in and she called police right away as she didn’t believe the man.
A Tense Wait
While waiting for Police to arrive, Willie heard a loud noise. The man managed to break through the door and gain entry into her home. Given the fact that Willie was an experienced bodybuilder, she was prepared to protect herself.
“He picked the wrong house to break into.” Willie told WHAM-TV during an interview.
Willie explains that her home was in darkness, so she hid while the intruder routed through her home. In an attempt to stop the intruder continuing his invasion, Willie grabbed the closest thing to her, which was a table, and smashed it right over the young intruder. She hit him so hard with the table that he fell to the floor and the table broke.YouTube Source: YouTube
“The table broke. And when he’s down, I’m jumping on him,” Willie went on to explain during her interview.
While the intruder was still on the floor, Willie grabbed a bottle of shampoo and proceeded to pour it all over his face with the intention of temporarily blinding him.
Although this was not enough, Willie then got ahold of a broom in which she beat him with the broom. The intruder got the surprise of his life when this 82-year-old woman put him to the ground and beat him. He was no match for this elderly grandmotherYouTube Screenshot Source: YouTube Screenshot
When the Rochester NY Police arrived on the scene the man was still on the floor. It’s so ironic that he now may need an ambulance, the initial reason he gave Willie for knocking on the door. The intruder was taken to the hospital to have his injuries assessed.
The Rochester NYPD Genesee Section Officers were so impressed by Willie’s actions, they asked if they could have their picture taken with her. Ms. Murphy proudly obliged.YouTube Screenshot Source: YouTube Screenshot
During Willie’s interview with Fox Rochester News, she stated:
“a young man is in my home, broke the door and you know what? It’s kinda semi-dark and I’m alone, and I’m old, but guess what, I’m tough”
Willie goes on to explain that when he was down after she broke the table over him, she began jumping on him. After the shampoo incident, when she grabbed the broom, they began playing tug of war with the broom, but she wasn’t giving in to him. She really did a number on him. There’s no messing around with this tough senior. The intruder may think twice again before breaking into someone’s home.YouTube Screenshot Source: YouTube Screenshot
Willie visited the Maplewood YMCA, her local gym a few days after the incident and was given a hero’s welcome. Willie is still in such good shape, at her age of 82 she can still deadlift 225 pounds and is proud of it.
