(AP) GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands - Police in the Cayman Islands say a woman drove off an intruder by biting him. It cost her a tooth, though.

Police Chief Inspector Robert Scotland says the woman was home alone when she woke up to find a man standing over her bed. Scotland told The Associated Press on Friday that the woman bit the intruder when he put his hand over her mouth. He then fled.

He said the woman was treated at a hospital and that police are still looking for the intruder.

The incident occurred early Thursday in the northwest part of Grand Cayman.
