Telise Maquair was wakened by unusual sounds in her home. When she investigated she found a stranger standing in her living room.
The gentle giant threw a punch at her face, causing bruising and damaging her teeth. He then chased her around her home and into a back yard. Prying a loose board from her fence, the woman prepared to defend herself.
The intruder ran off.
The crime occurred in Lake Worth Florida on Dec. 20, 2014, reports say.
Lake Worth resident Telise Maquaire says she was asleep early Sunday morning when a strange noise woke her up, but when she emerged from her bedroom she never expected to see a stranger standing in front of her Christmas tree.
She screamed and that's when she says the attacker came after her.
"I was just screaming and he left my husband and came here and got me right here onto the floor," said Maquaire.
"All I could see was the color of his hand as he's beating me."
