Local 71-year-old who turned tables on attacker to appear on national TV

ODESSA, Mo. - The 71-year-old Odessa, Mo., woman who turned the tables on her much younger attacker, makes her national TV debut today.

In December, a man pushed Nancy Flynn to the ground and stole $83 in cash. She was clearing leaves out of the garage of her Odessa home when the man approached her.

Once the man got ahold of her cash, Nancy went on the attack herself. Nancy said she kicked him in the groin, beat him with a club and pepper-sprayed the man until he ran away.

The "Steve Harvey Show" saw Nancy's story and flew her to Chicago last month for an appearance on the talk show. That episode airs today at 2 p.m.
