(WV)Elderly woman takes punch to face, chases off home intruder with revolver

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Undeterred by a punch to the face, a 70-year-old Fayette County woman greeted a late night intruder in her home with several rounds from her .38-caliber revolver, authorities said.

Deputies were dispatched to a potential burglary just before 2 a.m. Thursday at a home in Dothan.

While driving to the scene, deputies were told the homeowner called 911 and reported someone breaking into her home. She told dispatchers the intruder fled after she shot at him, according to a statement by the sheriff's office.

She told deputies her burglar alarm woke her just after 2 a.m., and she grabbed her gun and went to look for the cause of the alarm.
