MCALESTER, Okla. - A McAlester woman said she used a meat cleaver to defend herself during an attempted robbery.
The woman said she woke up around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday to find a man with a gun standing over her, asking for the key to her safe.
She said the man then grabbed her purse, so she fought him for it.
The man reportedly hit the woman and tried to choke her, but her son was able to grab the suspect’s gun.
During the fight, the woman, according to McAlester police, went into her kitchen and picked up a meat cleaver.
Then, she reportedly hit the suspect in several places with the cleaver, cutting him.
The suspect was hospitalized before he was transported to the Pittsburg County Jail. He was identified as Kaleb Oss, 20.
The woman’s son was also hospitalized for a cut on his wrist.
Oss was granted a $50,000 bond.
