Woman Uses Throwing Ax To Scare Off Thief

HEMET, Calif. (AP) — Police say a Southern California woman can throw a mean ax — and she used one to chase a burglar out of her house.

Hemet police said in a statement Monday that the woman called 911 and said she was awakened by a man trying to remove her watch from her wrist on Saturday morning.

The woman told police she’s a tomahawk throwing champion, and she quickly grabbed a throwing ax and chased the man out of the apartment.

Police searched the area and found a man hiding behind some nearby bushes, along with some property belonging to the woman.

Twenty-two-year-old Nicholas Ulloa was arrested on suspicion of burglary. He remains jailed.
