Elderly Seminole man fights female burglar Seminole, Florida - Walter and Ingeborg Funk were enjoying breakfast Saturday morning when there was a knock on the door. The 77-year-old man and his 81-year-old wife couldn't find anyone at the front or back door. When they came back inside, they say 22-year-old Nicole Mason-Suares was coming out of their guest room. As they confronted her, officials say she attacked Walter. Ingeborg ran to a bedroom and called 911. The elderly man and the young woman allegedly scuffled for several minutes inside the home and on the back patio. He says she grabbed for a knife, which he wrangled out of her hands. Then he says she bit him on the leg. Walter says he then reached for some pliers nearby and struck Mason-Suares on the head. When deputies arrived he had her pinned on the ground. Mason-Suares is charged with armed burglary, aggravated battery on a person over 65 and possession of burglary tools. No one was seriously injured during the home invasion.
