FOWLER, Calif. (AP) — A California mother has furiously battled an masked intruder trying to kidnap her toddler daughter from their home.

Fresno County sheriff's investigators say a man wearing a black ski mask broke into the home west of Fowler just before 9 a.m. Tuesday. He knocked the woman to the floor and struck and kicked her.

The Fresno Bee says the man then grabbed the woman's 2-year-old daughter and tried to get to his car.

The mother got a shotgun and ordered the attacker to release the girl.

Investigators say he dropped the child and drove away.

The child wasn't hurt and the mother's injuries were minor.
