(Scroll down for video) A brave woman and her son took on a would be robber who came into their home.

Jamila Sloan was home with her 8-year-old son Chris Turner, when a man came into their home. “He broke through my kitchen door. I feared for my life, my sons life and our well being,” Sloan said.

Sloan knew she had to act quickly to protect herself and her son. They used the best weapon available to them at the time, a fish tank.

The duo, who live in Cleveland, Ohio, pushed the intruder’s head into their fish tank. The intruder tried to fight back by pulling Sloan’s hair. “He began to pull my mom’s hair, that’s when I became very angry,” Turner said.

Turner then grabbed his scooter handle and hit the man with it.

They managed to wrestle the intruder to the floor and held him down until the police arrived.

Cleveland Police arrested the man who was identified as Glenn Talbert.
Talbert has a history of drugs and weapons charges, according to police.
