Grandma Stabs Would-Be Burglar in Neck with Barbecue Fork

At 2:45pm at her daughter's home in Sugar Land, Texas


A 73-year-old gutsy grandmother gave a would-be burglar something to think about when she stabbed him in the neck with a barbecue fork at her daughter's house in northeast Houston.

The Sugar Land woman stabbed the suspect at the home in the 7900 block of Lynette near N. Wayside about 2:45 p.m. Friday, said Kese Smith, a spokesman for the Houston Police Department.
