At gunpoint, 85-year-old Fayette County woman makes intruder call 911

From the Pittsburgh Tribune Review

An elderly Fayette County woman turned the tables on a 17-year-old burglary suspect Sunday, forcing him at gunpoint to dial 911 and then wait until state police arrived.
The 85-year-old victim, who lives on Old Lake Lynn Road in rural Springhill Township, told police she heard the male suspect break into her home about 3 p.m. and when she realized he was inside retrieved a handgun.
As the teenager attempted to hide in her bedroom, state police at Uniontown said, the woman instructed the burglar to turn around to her and not flee.
Trooper Christian Lieberum said the victim then ordered the burglar to dial 911 and give her the telephone after he placed the call.
"The victim then held the accused at gunpoint until state police arrived," Lieberum said.
Lieberum said the youth will be adjudicated in juvenile court.
Hey buddy .... I hope you can take an ass beating better than you can take a purse because as soon as your cell-mates find out you got owned by an 85 year old woman you're going to be somebody's bitch!
