MAYFIELD, Ky. (CBS/AP) Trick or treat?!
A masked intruder most definitely got a trick - in the form of a well-placed kick -- when he invaded the home of a feisty 88-year-old Kentucky woman.
Kathryn Byassee said she came upon the intruder, who was wearing a pumpkin mask, last Tuesday at 5 a.m. in her kitchen.
Byassee told WPSD-TV that she asked him who he was and what he wanted and he never answered her, instead wrestling her into her bedroom and trying to smother her with a pillow.
That's when Byassee said she was "mad enough to do almost anything," so she kicked him.
Apparently, that hit did the trick.
The 88-year-old woman said she thinks she "hit a vital spot," so he left." Happy Halloween.
Mayfield police are investigating.
