Marjorie Perkins is at the center of one of the latest strange tales to come out of the US criminal justice system.
“I thought to myself, ‘If he’s going to cut, I’m going to kick,’” Perkins said to the site.
So the former elementary school teacher stood up and began putting on her shoes but then started being hit by the teen intruder.
Perkins somewhat slowed the attack by grabbing a chair and using it as a shield, and she began screaming for help.
The teen pushed her and repeatedly punched her, landing at least one blow on her forehead which left a bruise.
Meanwhile, Perkins kicked him and with the chair blocked him from getting closer, she told the Times Record.
While the boy was distracted, Perkins said she grabbed her phone – a rotary one – and dialed 911 “as fast as [she] could”. »
