Monique Blair tells us how the homeowner... Managed to get away.

(Monique Blair/Reporting) A 31-year-old woman faced a judge just a few hours ago for a first degree burglary charge after police say she strangled a woman with a bra.

61-year-old Patricia Leece has bruises and scratches on her face and her arms are scraped up from yesterday morning's attack.

"It happened about 12:30 the other night. Someone came to my doors, banging, screaming and hollering."

Leece says she unlocked the door because she thought it was her granddaughter- but it was actually 31 year old Ashley Sies- Sies pushed her way inside, pulled out a clump of Leece's hair and started choking her with a bra.

"We fought for a good 15, 20 minutes. So finally I saw one of my chickens on the floor so I picked it up and started bashing her in the head with it."

Leece was able to knock Sies out, then she called police. Investigators say Sies appeared to be on drugs and she thought she was being followed when she showed up on Leece's porch.

"She was going door to door hoping someone would let her in. Of course it was me."

Although still dealing with cuts and bruises, Leece says she's just happy to be alive.
