MIAMI (AP) --

A 74-year-old woman used a pair of giant scissors to fight off a would-be robber.

Police say the incident happened last week. They are warning
others of the suspect, who posed as a delivery man to get inside
the woman's house.

The woman told police the man asked to use her phone to verify
the order. Once inside, he produced an electrical device and
repeatedly shocked her. The suspect ripped a gold chain off the
woman's neck and knocked her down twice. Her dachshund came to her aid, but the suspect shocked the dog too.

The suspect even shoved the phone underneath the woman's
bedridden husband to keep her from calling for help.

Somehow, the woman was able to grab a large pair of scissors and
scare the man away.
