A Burglar Breaks into the Home of an 82-Year-Old Woman. Turns Out She's a Bodybuilder, and He (Barely) Lives to Regret It

On Thursday night, a burglar broke into the wrong New York home.

Around 11:00 — just as Willie Murphy was getting ready for bed — a man began banging on her door.

He claimed to be in need of an ambulance — “I’m sick! I’m sick!”

Willie told Rochester’s WHAM-TV that she called the police but wouldn’t let the man in — which angered him.


“I hear a loud noise. I’m thinking, ‘What the heck was that?’ The young man is in my home. He broke the door.”

What’s an 82-year-old to do?

The man, in fact, was the numerical reverse of Willie: He was 28.

Man in his prime vs. woman in her senior years…who ya got??

The lady had a secret weapon:

“I”m alone and I’m old, but guess what? I’m tough.”

She’s not kidding — as it turns out, the man picked the home of an award-winning bodybuilder.

Octogenarian Willie can deadlift almost 250.


The intruder crept through her home, but so did she.

And then, Willie did what any great-great grandmother would do:

“I picked up the table, and I went to work on him.”

Eventually, her weapon surrendered:

“The table broke.”

So Willie stomped that fool:

“And when he’s down, I’m jumping on him.”

Followed by a bit of improv:

“I grabbed the shampoo. Guess what? He’s still on the ground. In his face, all of it, the whole thing.”

Next, Willie grabbed a broom and swept the floor with Mr. Red Eyes:

“I got the broom. He’s pulling the broom. I’m hitting him with the broom.”

When the first responders arrived, they wanted selfies with the terminator.

At the Maplewood YMCA — where she goes every day — she received a hero’s welcome.


Willie lamented the poor judgement of a would-be thief over half a century her junior:

“He picked the wrong house to break into.”

Yeah he did.
