67-year-old Lorenza Marrujo is not even five feet tall, but on Monday night she managed to take down and stop a man who broke into her senior apartment complex.

Marrujo, who says she is a black belt, told CBS LA, "As he was coming towards me I said, 'Back off right away.'"

The intruder left her apartment but went down next door into her 87-year-old neighbor's unit. Marrujo could hear her neighbor Elizabeth McCray screaming so she ran in to help.

She said:

“I squeezed myself between her and him. I put mama on the side, and I jumped on him and I was punching him and everything, and I had the cane against his throat.
He lifted up and tried to twist my hand, but at the same time, I twisted his and turned it around real fast and he was saying, ‘You’re hurting me, you’re hurting me.' And I said, ‘I don’t care. I don’t care what happens to you. You had no right to hurt an elderly person.'”

McCray was thought their lives were in danger, but Marrujo told her, "Not tonight."

Awesome! McCray was taken to a hospital but thankfully is okay and has been released. The suspect was taken into police custody.

You can read more about Marrujo in a write up in the San Bernardino Sun.
