Authorities say a woman attempting to steal from an 86-year-old man ended up brawling with him for eight hours in his southern New Jersey home.

The Courier Post reports a Millville man let 46-year-old Kay Carty into his home Tuesday morning after she knocked asking for a glass of water.
 
Authorities say the man asked Carty to leave when she attempted to take items from his home.
 
Police say the two then brawled on and off for nearly eight hours until the victim's son came home and found the man holding Carty down on the floor.
 
Both Carty and the victim were hospitalized with broken bones.
 
Police have charged Carty with burglary, assault and weapons possession.
