BUCHTEL, OH (WCMH)  An 83-year-old woman said she used her cane to fight off an intruder who broke into her Buchtel, Ohio home Monday.

Rozella Brown, heard her doorbell ring, but did not answer it or look to see who was at the door.

A short time later, Brown saw a person crawling across her kitchen floor, moving toward her bedroom.

"I never even thought of 911. I just thought I could chase him out," she said. "Wherever I could find to hit him, on the head, the back, I just started swinging. I didn't care where I hit him."
