Brownsville Police arrested Adrian J. Dorsett, for aggravated robbery and burglary of habitation on August 13.
Jose Trevino, spokesperson for Brownsville PD, said the victim tried to defend herself and hit Dorsett with a pipe when he broke into her house.
He took it away and hit her back on the head.
She received non-life threatening injures, and officers arrested him after a short foot pursuit.
Dorsett was also arrested for criminal trespass and evading arrest.
Trevino suggests to never fight back when someone breaks into your house, but to call 9-11.
Dorsett received a total bond of $90,000.
