Police Sgt. John Moore say a 25-year-old man talked his way into the woman’s home shortly after 7 a.m. Saturday, claiming he was homeless and had nowhere to go.
Moore says when he tried to attack the woman, she fought back and “beat him down with a frying pan.”
When police arrived, he was unconscious on the floor.
