    Ouch. That'll teach him.

    She's a real ball breaker.

    An 88-year-old Portland, Ore. woman fended off a naked intruder by grabbing the man's crotch and squeezing.

    Multnomah County Sheriff's Deputy Paul McRedmond said the man got into the house Tuesday through a sliding door. He backed the woman into her living room and pushed her face down onto a chair.

    That's when the woman reached behind and squeezed. The man tore free and fled.

    McRedmond said a county code enforcement officer who heard the police call on his radio spotted a car near the woman's house and passed on the license information to authorities.

    Troutdale police arrested a 46-year-old man. He has been jailed on accusations of burglary, harassment and private indecency. Bail was set at $110,000.
