"What kind of momma you got that raised you up like this?"

Those were the words spoken by 83 year old Lillie McClendon when she was confronted by an intruder in her central Houston home. 

According to ABC 13, McClendon became wary when she noticed some things in her house were out of place, that's about the time when the would-be robber placed his hands around her neck demanding to know the whereabouts of money. However, this little old lady was no easy target.

McClendon first gave the man a tongue-lashing calling out his upbringing, then she grabbed a stick and started hitting him. After that, she grabbed a boiling pot of water from the stove and threw it at the intruder. The man fled, and police are still trying to locate him.
