OMAHA, Neb. -- A pot of boiling water foiled an attempted robbery on Wednesday.

Omaha police said officers went to 4227 Miami St. for a home invasion call. The resident said someone had come to her home and asked to use the telephone. She said no, but two people forced their way into her home, hit in the face and demanded her purse.

One of the robbers tried to grab the woman's purse, but it was just then the victim's mother came to assist. Police said she had overheard the struggle and came armed -- she threw a pot of boiling water on the robbers.

The robbers fled empty handed.

we must ban these dangerous assault stoves which can heat water above 200 degrees fahrenheit!

Probably a high-capacity assault pan, capable of holding more that 10 oz. of water.
