Woman Fends off Burglars with Broom
(WHDH) A woman in Windham, New Hampshire stopped an alleged break-in at a neighbor's home by scaring away the suspects with a broom.
It happened right as Katherine Reader was cooking dinner Thursday afternoon.
"And I could see right from my stove, right out my window," Reader explained.
Police say what she saw was a home break-in underway at her neighbor's house. But Reader wasn't having it, so she armed herself with a broom, and walked over.
"And it made me so angry that they broke into her house, so I just picked up the broom and I kept saying, 'Don't go anywhere, stay where you are, I got you covered,'" Reader said.
She came face-to-face with one of the suspects; her bold entrance apparently spooked him.
Windham police say the two suspects tried to run but didn't get far. Reader was on their tail.
