Willie Murphy, an 82-year-old woman and award winning body builder, found herself in the middle of a home invasion and lived to tell the tale.
It was just past 11 p.m. on Thursday night when Murphy was getting ready for bed and heard someone banging on her door. The man outside could be heard saying “I’m sick, I’m sick, please call an ambulance,” as he pounded on the door. Although she would not open the door for him, Murphy decided to help by calling the police, and that’s when he got angry and broke the door down.
According to Willie Murphy, “He picked the wrong house to break into.” Not only does she workout at Maplewood YMCA almost everyday, but she says she can deadlift 225 pounds! She used the darkness of her house to her advantage and hid from the intruder as he wandered through. She then grabbed the closest thing she could find, which was a table believe it or not, and struck!
“I picked up the table, and I went to work on him. The table broke, and when he’s down,” she continued, “I’m jumping on him.” While the intruder was down, she then took some shampoo and emptied THE ENTIRE BOTTLE on him, then proceeded to beat him with a broom until police arrived.
The intruder was taken to the hospital for his injuries and Willie Murphy was applauded by first responders. “The officers that came wanted to go on my front porch and take selfies with me,” she said.
Shout out to bad a** Willie Murphy, don’t step to her!!
