A pregnant LaPorte County mother, with a strong instinct to protect her children, managed to scare off a man who invaded her home.

Rachel Rhodes, 30, of Mill Creek barely had time to think when a strange man kicked down her door Thursday morning.

Rhodes is 5 months pregnant, and her other daughter was taking a nap at the time.

She says she grabbed a knife from her kitchen and confronted the intruder.

The man fled, and according to the Northwest Indiana Times, police are now searching for him.

The culprit is described as clean shaven, 25 to 35 years old, and driving a dark green Cadillac.
