The Hood County Sheriff's Office says they are looking for the man who forced his way into a 25-year-old woman's home early Monday morning.

However the woman, who is 35 weeks pregnant, was not going down without a fight.

Investigators say she heard a knock on her front door around 6 a.m. Monday. When she opened the door, a man with a knife forced his way in. 

Officers say the woman grabbed a nearby flower vase and smashed it over the man's head. Her dog then rushed into the room and bit the man on the leg and chased him out of the home.
