Florida woman fends off half-naked attacker with baseball bat

(NY DAILY) – One swing and he was out.

A 65-year-old Florida woman fended off a 5’6, 300-pound attacker with one blow from her baseball bat.

Antonio Mosley was wearing nothing but boxers when he attempted to break into Clarese Gainey’s car.

She saw him through the window of her apartment. Before calling police, she decided to take a crack at him herself.

“I grab my bat, I brace myself, and I ease the door open,” Gainey told WGFL. When Mosley caught sight of her, he charged at her, she said.

Little did he know, Gainey had played softball in high school and wasn’t rusty on her moves. She took a swing at him and struck his head, leaving a lump.

“I took that bat and hit him upside the head like ‘pi-yah!’ He said ‘Ow!’” recalled Gainey. Moseley retreated to a trailer park, where police tracked him down.

He is charged with burglary and possession of drugs and is being held at Alachua County Jail.

Alachua County Sheriff’s Office plans to release a police report Wednesday night.
