CLEVELAND, (UPI) — A Cleveland woman and her 8-year-old son took on a home invasion and won, by dunking the intruder’s head in a fish tank, among other actions.

Jamila Sloan said the suspect entered her home Saturday and “busted through my kitchen door.”

“This is my house,” she later told WOIO-TV. “I was really in fear of my life, my son’s life.”

Police said she and son Chris Turner pushed the intruder into the fish tank, and hitting him on the head.

“I was choking him and punching him and biting and scratching and doing everything I could,” she said.

When the suspect pulled his mom’s hair, the son “got really, really mad,” Chris said. “I got mad and starting hitting him with a handle from my scooter.”

Cleveland police arrested Talbert Glenn at the scene, adding Glenn has a criminal record for drug and weapons possession.
