Elderly Woman Beat Nearly Naked Man with Her Bat: 'Pi-Yow!'
Early on Sunday morning, a 65-year-old woman heard a noise outside her apartment and when she investigated she saw a large man trying to break into her parked car.
The man was only wearing his boxer shorts and charged at her when she came outside. Things didn’t turn out well for him.
When Florida resident Clarese Gainey heard a disturbance outside her home, instead of calling the police she decided to take matters in her own hands. Looking out of the window of her NE 16th Avenue apartment she saw a man in his boxers trying to pull open her car door handle.
The man, who was only in his boxers, also tried knocking on the car window in an attempt to break in. Before calling the police at around 5:40 a.m., Gainey decided to tackle the intruder head-on.
She explained: "I grab my bat, I brace myself and I ease the door open." Seeing her, the man named Antonio Mosely, 37, responded by charging at her.
The elderly woman should’ve turned back and run inside at that point because Mosely was a 5'6, 300-pound man. However, Gainey stood her ground "took that bat and hit him upside the head like 'pi-yah!' He said 'Ow!'"
Police revealed that the suspect ran away to a nearby mobile home park and left behind his pants, shirt, and one sock. The impact from the bat was enough to chase away the intruder who didn’t know that Gainey was a high school softball player.
She recalled: "He was in his drawers, he didn't have no shoes on, no shirt or nothing.” Mosely was tracked down by a K-9 unit and was found inside a mobile home.
When the police found him he was wearing a new pair of pants with cocaine in his pocket. They brought the suspect back to Gainey so she could identify him which she did.
The police also noted that Mosely had a bump on his head. He is now being held in the Alachua County Jail with attempted burglary to both an occupied and unoccupied conveyance and drug possession.
Gainey joked: "He better be glad I didn't have a gun," adding "Because I would have shot him. But this is my gun right here [baseball bat]. Because I gone 'Pi-yow!'"
In a similar incident that occurred in Brazil on a Saturday night, UFC strawweight fighter Polyana Viana was waiting for an Uber outside her apartment in Jacarepagua near Rio de Janeiro when a man approached her. The man tried to steal her phone but got more than what he bargained for.
The man, armed with a fake gun, was overpowered by Viana who beat him up when she realized the gun was made of cardboard paper. She beat him until he begged her to stop and let him go.
The athlete held the suspect’s arm in a kimura-like position until the police arrived to arrest him.
