A Georgia grandmother came face-to-face with death when she fought back against two men who had invaded her home Friday.
CeCe Coffee, of Peachtree City, refused to cooperate when robbers — one carrying a shotgun — broke into her house through her garage.
“One approached me on the side of the sofa and said to me, he wanted my safe and my money," said Coffee. "I think it threw him off that I wouldn't submit," she told a local news station. "I was not going to be tied up, and I was not going to have a blanket put over my head. I was not going to be executed that way."
They beat her and grabbed wires off the wall to restrain her, but didn’t get very far, she said.
"I think it was grannies gone wild," Coffee said. "I don't think they expected that amount of energy or strength from me because I would grab his wrist and block his blows."
When the man who lives with her, Jeff Young, came into the living room, the thugs — dressed in black from head to foot — were distracted.
Coffee saw her chance and ran for the door.
