Willie Murphy is 82 years old, but a home intruder got the surprise of his life when the senior gave him a beating. Murphy isn't an ordinary senior citizen, the intruder learned — she's an award-winning bodybuilder who can deadlift 225 pounds.

"He picked the wrong house to break into," Murphy told WHAM-TV of the incident, which took place Nov. 21 just after 11 p.m.

Recounting that fateful night, Murphy explained that she had been getting ready for bed when a man began banging on her door, crying out that he was sick and in need of an ambulance.

Murphy was wary, so she contacted the police and refused to let the suspect in, which is when he broke down the door.

"I hear a loud noise," she said. "I'm thinking, 'What the heck was that? The young man is in my home.'"

Murphy had two options: She could try to run away or she could stay and fight the burglar. She grabbed a table and "went to work on him."

When he was "down" she began jumping on him until she was sure he was too injured to get up. She then grabbed a bottle of shampoo and poured its contents onto his face before reaching for the broom.

"He's pulling the broom. I'm hitting him with the broom," she said.

Police arrived at the scene to find that Murphy had the situation under control. The suspect was taken to the hospital and the feisty bodybuilder was hailed as a hero. She even had to pose for several selfies with the officers.
