A Kentucky woman who allegedly tried to strangle another woman with a bra was thwarted when the victim fought back with a ceramic chicken.
Police in Lexington arrested Ashley Sies, 31, early Monday morning after she allegedly pushed her way into a home belonging to Patricia Leece, 61.
"It happened about 12:30 the other night. Someone came to my doors, banging, screaming and hollering," Leece told WKYT.
At first, Leece thought her granddaughter was the one banging on the door. Instead, it was Sies pushed her way inside of Leece's home and wrapped a bra around the homeowner's neck.
Sies and Leece struggled for about 15 to 20 minutes before the victim found a way to protect herself, Leece says.
"Finally, I saw one of my (ceramic) chickens on the floor so I picked it up and started bashing her on the head with it," she said, according to UPI.com.
Sies was knocked out by the chicken. Leece locked herself in the bathroom and called police, Kentucky.com reports.
Officers then took Sies to the hospital before booking her on charges of first-degree burglary, WKYT reports. Leece told the station she also plans to press charges for the attack.
Sies was in court Tuesday morning where she pleaded not guilty to the burglary charge, according to Kentucky.com.
