An 83-year-old woman beats an intruder with her cane.

Athens County Sheriff Patrick Kelly says Rozella Brown was watching television when she noticed a figure crawling across her kitchen floor, moving toward her bedroom.

She got up to check it out, finding a school-aged male, average height and weight, wearing a gray corduroy hooded jacket and blue jeans.

Police say she began to hit the male with her cane until he ran out the back door.

Brown thinks only $100 in cash was taken.

The incident remains under investigation.
