A violent crook perhaps got a bit more than he bargained for after breaking into an apartment in Jackson, Mississippi, and physically attacking a pair of women inside the dwelling earlier this week.

What went down?

Police said Cardarra Williams, 34, kicked in the door of an apartment on Glen Cross Drive on Wednesday and took a victim's cellphone and debit card, WAPT-TV reported.

The victim was a female, WJTV-TV reported, and the station added that Williams also demanded money after taking her property.

But apparently that heist wasn't quite enough for Williams.

What happened next?

Investigators said Williams soon returned to the apartment and assaulted that same woman as well as the woman who owns the apartment, WJTV said.

But police said that as the apartment owner was being attacked — WAPT reported that she was being punched in the head — she grabbed a knife and cut Williams several times, WJTV reported.

It seems that was the end of his alleged physical attack on the pair of women, because WJTV said Williams was taken to the University of Mississippi Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Now what?

Williams will be charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and strong-armed robbery, WJTV said, adding that he'll be taken to the Hinds County Detention Center after he’s released from the hospital.
