FRESNO, Calif. (AP) – A California man in the wrong apartment is licking his wounds after being pummeled by a karate student who found the intruder in her bathroom.

Jannine Ramirez had just won a karate competition when she arrived at her Fresno apartment and heard 18-year-old Wilberto Zapata in the bathroom.

The Fresno Bee says the 20-year-old woman kicked down the bathroom door and kicked the stranger through a shower door before landing a series of punches until he was out of the apartment.

Police say Zapata recently moved into the apartment complex and he mistakenly went into the Ramirez apartment unit early Sunday. Detectives say he was drunk.

Zapata was cited for unlawful entry into a home and released.
