Ax-wielding woman chases thief from homeNovember 4, 2013 @ 4:53 pm
HEMET, Calif. (AP) - Police say a Southern California woman can throw a mean ax _ and she used one to chase a burglar from her house.
Hemet police say the woman called 911 on Saturday morning and said she'd been awakened by a man trying to remove her watch from her wrist.
The woman told police she's a tomahawk-throwing champion, and she quickly grabbed a throwing ax and chased the man out of the apartment.
Police searched the area and found a man hiding behind some nearby bushes, along with property belonging to the woman.
Twenty-two-year-old Nicholas Ulloa was arrested on suspicion of burglary. He remains jailed Monday, and police say they don't know whether he has an attorney.
