SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – A mom said her teen son fought off an intruder who busted through the family’s front door.
It happened around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday at a home on South Center Street in Spartanburg.
The teen’s mom said a woman broke in with a pitchfork. She said her son was home and stabbed the woman – cutting himself in the process – and called 911.
Both the boy and the woman who allegedly broke into the home were taken to the hospital.
The teen is back home and will head to Carver Middle School where his mom says he has a big test to take Wednesday morning.
Major Art Littlejohn with Spartanburg Police Department said officers found a woman stabbed and walking from the scene.
The woman was identified as Natalie Faye Woodruff, 30, of Spartanburg. She was taken to the hospital and later jailed at the Spartanburg County Detention Center.
Woodruff is charged with first-degree burglary.
