LEXINGTON, Ky. (PIX11) -- A Kentucky woman being strangled by a burglar with a bra fought off her attacker with a ceramic chicken.

According to police, the 61-year-old was attacked when she opened her door to who she thought was her granddaughter.

However, the 31-year-old woman outside was trying to break in. The suspect pushed her way into the home and wrapped a bra around the victim's neck. The 61-year-old had other plans for the attacker.

"We fought probably, 15, 20 minutes," the victim said. "So finally, I saw one of my chickens laying on the floor, so I picked it up, started bashing her in the head with it."

After the victim managed to knock out the attacker, she called the police. The suspect is charged with first-degree burglary.
