Watch Pajama-Clad Granny Scold Home Intruders: 'Get the Hell Out of Here!'
Guelda Messina, 78, bravely chased the three men from her Washington home after they broke in.
A tough-talking, 78-year-old granny caught them red-handed.
"Get the hell out of here!" Guelda Messina told the intruders.
She became an overnight heroine when the surveillance tape hit the Internet.
She told INSIDE EDITION: "I am a little confrontational, I guess. I am sort of a take-charge mother and I guess that was just my mother reaction."
She was asleep in the bedroom when the three young men broke into her home around 9 a.m. on Monday morning, she said.
One was holding a crow bar as he came up the staircase, she said.
One grabbed her purse as the other two ran around her house, she said.
The guys are so noisy and clumsy they woke her up, she said.
After she scared them away, Messina called her daughter, Megan, whose husband called 911.
The burglars made off with $20 and a pair of earrings.
