INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Authorities are praising a woman's quick thinking after she was attacked by an intruder.
The 52-year-old woman, named Carol, told police that a man was waiting for her in her garage when she got home on Tuesday.
Carol says she told that man that he could have her purse, but then he grabbed her and pinned her against a toolbox.
"So I grabbed a staple gun and smacked him on the side of the head. He went down to his knees," Carol said. "I loaded up with two more [staple guns] in my other hand and he started charging at me again and I said, 'I will crush your skull in if you touch me again."
At that point, she says the attacker left.
