Hell hath no fury like a woman with a frying pan


Hutchinson police say a 71-year-old woman knocked a man who attacked her comatose with her frying pan.

Police Sgt. John Moore said 25-year-old Kevin Funderburk talked his way into the woman's home on Saturday, claiming he was homeless and had nowhere to go.

Moore said that when he tried to attack the woman, she fought back and "beat him down with a frying pan."
"When we arrived, he was unconscious and lying in his own vomit in the back of the house," Moore told The Hutchinson News. "He was in the hospital in Wichita over the weekend and they stapled his scalp."

Funderburk was jailed on $55,200 bond on suspicion of attempted rape, provoked battery, criminal restraint and criminal damage to property. He was wearing a neck brace when he made his first look Tuesday in court.
The Hutchinson News reported that the woman was injured, but Moore did not release how serious her injuries were.
