A woman was awakened in the middle of the night by a burglar and proceeded to chase him out of her home with an ax.
Robin Irvine of Hemet, Calif. called 911 on Saturday morning and said she'd been awakened by a man trying to remove her watch from her wrist, reports NBC4. The burglar had already ransacked other rooms before entering her bedroom.
Irvine happens to be a tomahawk-throwing champion and had an ax resting right next to her bed. She grabbed the ax and chased the man out of the apartment, opting not to throw it at him knowing that she would likely hit and/or kill the man. "I hit what I aim for," Irvine told NBC4.
Police searched the area and found a man hiding behind some nearby bushes, along with property belonging to the woman.
Nicholas Ulloa, 22, was arrested on suspicion of burglary.
