104-year-old woman scares off burglar during home invasion

FRESNO, CA (WCMH)– When a burglar attempted to break into her home, the 104-year-old woman stood her ground and scared him off.

According to KFSN, Lydia, who only wanted to use her first name, was at her Fresno, California home when she said she heard an unusual noise outside her home.

She said she got up to check out the noise and that’s when she saw a man looking in the window and attempting to cut through the screen.

That’s when she turned on the lights.

“It disappeared….he must have run away,” Lydia told KFSN.

Even hours after the attempted break-in, Lydia still hadn’t called the police.

“I’ve heard they are so busy and some little thing like this…they just have to skip it,” she said.

But despite the incident, Lydia says she doesn’t have plans on moving. “…right now I can take care of myself.”
