Kevin Scott Funderburk was arraigned on Tuesday after a 71-year-old woman beat the living hell out of him with a a frying pan when he allegedly attempted to rape her.
Police say 25-year-old Funderburk knocked on the woman’s door and pretended to be homeless so she would let him in.
“He was drunk and said he didn’t want trouble with police,” said police Det. Sgt. John Moore.
Once he was in the home, Funderburk allegedly forced the woman to the floor and tried to rape her. The woman, however, managed to grab a frying pan, which she used to repeatedly hit Funderburk square on the head.
“She was fighting for her life,” said Moore. “She beat him down with a frying pan.”
When police finally arrived at the scene on Saturday morning, Funderburk was unconscious and lying in his own vomit. EMTs took Funderburk to a local hospital where he is still recovering.
Funderburk was booked into the Reno County Jail on charges of attempted rape, aggravated battery, criminal restraint and criminal damage to property.
