Woman Fends Off Attacker By Beating Him With Frying PanTEWKSBURY, MA — A man got a little more than he bargained for when he allegedly tried raping a woman in a hotel room, and she ended up beating his ass with a frying pan.

According to prosecutors, 46-year-old Frank Harrison offered to give a woman a ride from one party to another early Sunday morning. She agreed, but realized they were going in the wrong direction. Harrison explained he needed to stop by his hotel room to pick up some cigarettes.

Once inside the room at Extended Stay America, the woman called a friend to come pick her up. While waiting, the woman said Harrison took off his pants, grabbed her and attempted to rape her while brandishing a steak knife.

The victim said she grabbed a frying pan and used it to hit Harrison repeatedly in the head and face. When the victim’s friend arrived and began banging on the door, she said Harrison threw the knife and ran out the door bleeding like a stuck pig. When police arrived at the hotel at around 5:30 a.m., they found Harrison covered in blood. He was taken to the hospital to treat the golf ball sized lumps to his noggin and lacerations to his face.

The woman told police why she had hit Harrison, and he was later arrested on charges of kidnapping, armed assault with intent to rape and indecent assault and battery on a person over the age of 14. At his arraignment Monday, his defense attorney said that their client was actually the victim, and that the woman and her friend had tried to rob him. Harrison is being held without bail until his dangerousness hearing on Friday.

Not surprisingly, this isn’t the first time we’ve reported on a woman fending off an attack with a frying pan. In 2011, we reported on a woman who fractured the orbital bones of a man who was attempting to sexually assault her.

    LOL at those bumps! I expect to see bluebirds spinning above his head.

    When I was a kid, a cast iron skillet fell off a wall and hit me on the head. I didn’t feel a thing but the handle broke off. Then again, this could explain a few things.

  • CT

    This wouldn’t have happened if he has stayed at the Holiday Inn Express.

    Fig Newon’s Law on Gravy -n-Tea

    Gravy-n-Tea Law 1- A frying pan at rest cooks gravy -n- tea.

    Gravy-n-Tea Law 2 – A frying pan in motion , tends not to cook gravy or tea until it hit the face of some stupid dude.

  • Carren Jones

    See, no need for guns, everyone should just carry cast iron pans.

  • Texas Ranger

    Ha! I fell outta my chair when I saw his cartoon lumps. I can just see Ol’ Weezy wailin on his head. Damn, now I’m smiling. Thanks Morbid!

    The shitters full.

  • Jubilex

    I’m just trying to imagine the sound it made – was it aluminum or cast iron? I’m trying to figure out if it was a ‘thwong’ or a ‘thud’.

  • https://www.facebook.com/sarahkay215 Sarah Rost

    Frying pans, Who knew?

  • Kittyskyfish

    Using Extended Stay America-supplied cookware, it’s a ‘thwong’ aluminum pan for sure.

  • Kittyskyfish

    Who takes a frying pan with them to a hotel room? Oh well, glad she did!

  • Jessica Stewart

    Pete Puma anyone? Was this an adult female or like a 16yo? the “indecent assault and battery on a person over the age of 14″ makes me wonder. I wouldn’t be going into the hotel room of a rando dude who was giving me a ride tho, especially if he said all he needed was smokes….I’d be like “I’ll just wait in the car…..” Not that she deserved to be assaulted or anything but c’mon, you gotta make smart choices, and that includes not entering random hotel rooms with random guys.

  • Lena60

    Looks like he got in a fight with a hornets nest. Hornets1 Rapist 0. Good for her that will learn him

  • Hiearchy87

    Please tell me I’m not the only one thinking about “Tangled”. Ya know, the part where the entire guard replaces swords with frying pans…. Yea I’ve been home sick with a toddler for too many days lol

  • BrittBrittRoss

    Oh, the hilarity!!!

  • Tainted Trixter

    Ok… So I’m not saying that he didn’t do it, and I’m not saying that he did. Indeed he probably did. If he did do it he totally deserves to get his ass whooped and a vacation in a correctional facility.

    I get the lumps.. But am I the only one who finds the lacerations to his cheek and jaw to be a bit odd? I mean those bones aren’t all that difficult to break, and the force of a strike with a pot would be magnified if you hit someone with the edge.(resulting in lacerations). I mean I suppose it could have been a glancing blow. Especially on the cheek, that could happen pretty easily. I am having trouble figuring how a blow with a pot could cause a laceration to his chin without causing any other major damage. In the court video you can see his jaw is not immobilized and he appears to have his teeth still. And there is her statement that she agreed to go to his room to ‘get his smokes’, she could have just been not thinking, or it could be a quickly concocted cover up. I do know that they found torn bra and other ripped clothing at the scene, but they don’t say what injuries the victim suffered (and I would think she would almost certainly have received something through the struggle. Then again maybe that is where his lacerations came from.. Ok.. yeah I can see that, pushed his face away and scratched. Though even though I see that story being consistent it isn’t how it was reported, the reports all say the damage to his face was from the pot.

    I can imagine that if that was the case it would come out rather quickly. I would like to say I can’t see it going long enough for the guy to get arraigned if the facial lacerations were more consistent with knife wounds than with getting hit in the face with a pot. I would like to say that…. but more inane things have happened.

    Psh. Why can’t they just give us all of the crime scene info to examine so we can be judge/jury/etc. effectively.. Oh yeah.. civil liberties and stuff like that.

    Then again maybe I just don’t hit enough people in the face with cookware. Those of you who do can tell us, are lacerations without other apparent damage consistent with being struck in the face with a pot/pan. I’m seriously curious. Does anyone have experience?

    I do have to agree with everyone else though about how comical his lumps look. You can see a few more in the arraignment video. Him looking all sad and lumpy hiding from the cameras behind his lawyer. Sad and lumpy.

  • Texas Ranger

    Hey Trixter, you see the lumps on his head in the picture? That shit is funny.

  • Tainted Trixter

    Yes, yes I do. And yes it is, it is cartoonish. I busted up laughing when I came to the Yogi pic.

  • Texas Ranger

    Okay.Just making sure…you seemed to have fallen off the deep contemplation end there for a bit….I don’t care what really happened, because he’s got big ol lumps on his head.

  • BrittBrittRoss

    LOFL

  • mike

    Pete Puma! Come back! Please!!!!!

  • TruTruTrue

    I’m guessing he still had the knife in his hand while he tried to shield himself from the onslaught of the frying pan!!!!!!!

  • https://www.facebook.com/CTS826 Christian Skovgaard

    why does a woman in a hotel room have a frying pan??

  • Lena60

    Bone + skin + a forced blow by a blunt object = lacerations. The skin will split.

  • Pyncky

    Good for her, if the rape story is true.

  • TruTruTrue

    Anyone looking for a new avatar.. Here it is..

    Anyway, here’s my theory:
    I think she spotted the frying pan and remembered that Bugs bunny cartoon from back in the days:
    Bugs Bunny: “How many lumps do you want?”
    Pete Puma:”Oh, three or four”

  • Lena60

    I am going to fantasize that the sound the pan made, while connecting to his head, was ding dong. :)

  • rpgmomma8404

    I’ve seen Tangled and I didn’t even think about that. Hilarious!

  • BrittBrittRoss

    El Kabong!

  • Abroad

    No, I have yet to see a frying pan in a room there…

  • CT

    Finally, someone got my point!

  • Craig Ellis

    I got to believe we’re talking a cast iron frying pan…how his skull isn’t bashed in is beyond me.

  • JimboBones

    What a dick.

  • Tainted Trixter

    I considered this as a possibility. I can totally buy that with the cheek, but again I didn’t dig on it as much for an answer for the jaw. I would think that any blow with a metal object hard enough to cause the bone to lacerate the skin of the jaw would also either a) cause the jaw to break, b) cause the jaw to be dislocated, or c) cause the teeth to shatter when the lower jaw hit the upper jaw.

    Thank you for the pan smashing response, I guess I just don’t hit enough people with them. ^_^

  • Kittyskyfish

    I’ve been thinking about this and it’s possible he was struck hard on the jaw with the lip of the pan, not the broad flat side. That girl must have a serve like Serena Williams!

  • Tainted Trixter

    Hmmm.. I can see that. I would like to see the actual wound. May give a better idea of how it was done.

  • Tainted Trixter

    I like this theory, and I had considered it as well. I am wondering though, how vigorously could he have been attacking her if he has defensive wounds from his own knife on his face?

  • Tainted Trixter

    Yeah, I do that, it is part of what I enjoy about the site.

  • Texas Ranger

    I know, Just jerking your chain… I didn’t even read the story because the lumps on his head just cracked me the hell up.

  • TruTruTrue

    I’ve seen some MMA fights that all it takes is 1 clean shot for their hands to go into a prenatal pose when they hit the grown. Now imagine 1 good whack with the metal pan ? He was in Lala land by the time the second shot landed. After that she just went to town on him for being a dick/dush/rapist

  • https://www.facebook.com/Vicki1326 Victoria Will

    I’m sure why, because I haven’t even read the story or comments yet, but I am laughing hysterically over the title and photo. Guess he picked the wrong bitch to attack.

    You folks are not getting the entire story. She was COOKING METH with the frying pan.

  • WarriorArtemis

    Lol, I remember watching the chick in that cartoon Tangled beat the shit out of people and wondering if that shit worked…apparently it does. lol

  • JustBrowsingLife

    I know this is a serious article. Please forgive me for chuckling at the picture. I immediately conjured up pictures of Tom and Jerry, Foghorn Leghorn, and Hanna Barberra cartoons. You can just see those bumps as they slowly grow out of the top of his head, if you listen close you can hear the cartoon noises as the frying pan makes contact as well as the blood curdling scream he must have emitted, and the stretching noises as the bumps grow. Hearty har har!

  • Andrea Pizzuto

    His mugshot is trying to emulate this article’s author. The most sincere flattery is imitation..

  • Aussie Sabbath

    So are those lumps on his forehead from where she clocked him with the frying pan or are those them ugly body mod things?

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    My wife says that when she had to defend herself from her abusive first husband with a “Princess” phone, it sounded like someone was calling the house. Brrrrrrrrr-ing Brrrrrrrrr-ing Brrrrrrrrr-ing!
    He wasn’t too happy about losing all of the teeth on one side of his head. Those “Princess” phones were pretty solid.

  • Jessie

    Ha! That’s a good movie, btw.

  • Jessie

    It’s possible she scratched his face with her claws before grabbing the frying pan…

  • CT

    For lots of reason, JohnQ.

  • Lena60

    lol They do look like those body mod things.

    Nuticles. I don’t know why that popped into my mind. Cosmetic dog testicles are really hard to work into a forum conversation. I feel like I have accomplished my creative writing goals for today.

  • JustBrowsingLife

    Nuticles do not usually get installed on one’s forehead.

  • JustBrowsingLife

    Or the Serina Williams serve noises as she swunf the frying pan.

  • Lena60

    Please tell me they don’t actually have them, and that you made it up being creative and all. :)

    My dog wants a pair but I explained to him that mama needs a new pair of shoes and a new car!

  • Stormblast

    Good thing most of my skillets are cast iron! Intruders beware!

  • FrikkenFrak

    I agree. Great flick!

    Huh….I just remembered another great scene with a skillet…Fried Green Tomatoes! “I told you ain’t nobody gonna take Miss Ruth’s baby!”

  • FrikkenFrak

    Damn right! lol

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Would make sense for him to have a pair of dog nuts on his head.

  • Jessie

    OMG I am kinda pissed at myself for not remembering that one. Good reference and that is TRULY one of my favorite movies! Tawanda!
