After two windows were broken simultaneously in her Elyria, Ohio, home, Mrs. Mary Farkas got a .22 revolver, entered the kitchen and found a man peering in.
Meanwhile an accomplice climbed in a front window. Mrs. Farkas fired a shot that sent both men fleeing, one leaving behind a machete.
Police apprehended three men later and charged two with malicious entry.
