GALVESTON, Texas (AP) -- Police say a Southeast Texas woman whipped out a paint ball gun and opened fire with distinctive yellow hue to stop a burglary suspect.

Galveston police say a 53-year-old man who sometimes mowed the woman's yard was arrested inside her home.

Bond has been set at $40,000 for Elvis Alexander of Galveston on a charge of burglary of a habitation with intent to commit theft. Online jail records Monday did not list an attorney for Alexander.

The Galveston County Daily News ( ) reports 34-year-old Carrie King called police Friday to say an intruder was in her home and she was hiding.

An arriving officer heard the firing of a paint ball gun and the sound of impact.

Police say Alexander was struck several times. He did not require medical help.Texas Woman Uses Paint Ball Gun To Stop Suspect
