"I got this stick. I had this sausage on the stove," Houston grandmother Lillie McClendon says. "I poured that water on him. I told him, I said, 'What kind of momma you got that raised you like this? You ought to be ashamed of yourself.'"

Houston, TX - A grandmother in Texas turns out to be a formidable opponent for a robber.

Eighty-three year old Lillie McClendon of Houston says a man broke into her home Sunday and demanded money.

She decided to fight back with the only weapons she had around.

"I got this stick. I had this sausage on the stove," she says. "I poured that water on him. I told him, I said, 'What kind of momma you got that raised you like this? You ought to be ashamed of yourself.'"

The robber did get away.

McClendon's family says they are just relieved she is okay.
