A World War II veteran says a woman who pretended her car had broken down so she could get into his Pennsylvania home grabbed two guns from his collection and engaged him in a shootout before jumping out a window with the weapons.

Donald Kaighn (CAYN') tells Philadelphia's WPVI-TV the woman sprayed him with lighter fluid and wrestled him in the kitchen Monday night before he grabbed a gun and chased her upstairs, where she found two guns and they had a shootout. He wasn't badly hurt.

The 84-year-old Kaighn says when he went downstairs to call police the woman snatched jewelry. Fingerprints show she leaped from a second-floor window of the home in suburban Ridley Township.

Police are looking for the woman following the latest in a rash of home invasions in the area over the last year.
