Philadelphia police say a group of baseball bat-wielding women busted through another woman’s home and unleashed a score of rats into her room — all over a fight over a man.

Investigators say the suspects, all eight or nine of them, used a baseball bat to smash through the 20-year-old woman’s windows and front door, The Associated Press reported. They then opened a box and dumped an unknown number of rats onto her floor.

One of the suspects also punched one victim at the home, age 30, and took her purse, police said. One of the family members of the homeowner suffered some sort of heart problem during the incident and was taken to the hospital for treatment, police said in the report.
