72-year-old woman thrwarts home robbery attempt

Published: Thu, March 28, 2013 @ 3:10 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A 26-year-old man is in police custody after attempting to break into the South Side home of a 72-year-old woman who fired a shot at him and held him at gunpoint until police arrival.

The man was taken to Mahoning County jail. Prosecutors haven't formally filed charges against him today, but he faces at least one charge of aggravated burglary.

Police said the man kicked in the window of the Ferndale Avenue woman about 8 p.m. Wednesday. The woman fired a shot at him, and police found him lying on the kitchen floor being held at gunpoint. He was not shot, but was treated for injuries sustained from the broken window.

She should have hit him witth the first shot. Time for her to go to the gun range and to do some more practicing with her gun. But I wish to thank the lady for standing up and defending herself.

I'm shocked too, the Vindicator showed the benefits of owning a gun. Next, maybe they will note the gun fact in a headline, not buried in the story.

Someday the Vindicator may represent the views of all, not just the very, very liberal crowd.
