A Southern California woman can throw a mean ax — and she used one to chase a burglar from her house, police said.

The woman called 911 on Saturday morning and said she'd been awakened by a man trying to remove her watch from her wrist, Hemet police said.

The woman told police she's a tomahawk-throwing champion, and she quickly grabbed a throwing ax and chased the man out of the apartment.

Police searched the area and found a man hiding behind some nearby bushes, along with property belonging to the woman.

Twenty-two-year-old Nicholas Ulloa was arrested on suspicion of burglary. He remains jailed Monday, and police say they don't know whether he has an attorney.
