Bee Want Ads.
Airs. Ferdinand A. Lehman, 55,
2705 South Nineteenth street, was fi
lially overcome by an intruder with
whom she battled furiously for sev
eral minutes, and locked in a clothes
closet, while her husband, uncon
scious of her danger, busied himscf
painting his garage in the back yard.
The struggle occurred Tuesday aft
ernoon Mrs. Lehman, who is hard of hear
ing, did not discover the presence of
the prowler until he entered her bed
room, where she was seated.
"What do you want?" she inquired.
"I want money," replied the prow
ler. 1 Mrs. Lehman believed the man had
been sent to her by her husband to
be paid for hauling rubbish away,
"All right, c6nie downstairs with
me and I'll give it to you."
"No you don't," replied the man,
and as she attempted to pass he
struck her in the mouth. A tussle fol
lowed. The man seized her by the
throat and she was unable to scream.
She fought desperately, but the man
finally dragged her into a clothes
closet and locked the door.
Before fleeing the man picked up
two watches and a pocket knife. Mr.
Lehman heard a pounding in the
house and found his wife in the
clothes closet a short time later. She
was badly bruised but not seriously
injured, it is, believed. She was able
to give police a good description of
