The Columbian reported that police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said the woman initially thought someone she knew was coming home, then saw a male stranger in his 20s walk into her living room Tuesday afternoon.
Kapp said the intruder reportedly grabbed the woman's legs and made sexual comments. That prompted her to pick up a nearby hand weight and hit him in the head. He ran back out the way he came in.
A K-9 unit searched but did not find the man.
The unidentified woman was not hurt and nothing was taken.
