A 78-year-old grandmother was awakened from sleep one night by her dog barking. Immediately sensing something was wrong, the woman grabbed her shotgun and crept outside of her bedroom. When she reached the laundry room she spotted the reason for her dog’s alert: a man standing only feet away from her. The woman confronted the intruder, and he turned to leave. But the woman wasn’t having any of it, telling reporters she ordered him to “stay right there!” and stood over him with her shotgun. She then directed him onto her porch, where she detained him until police arrived and took him in to custody. The woman dropped the charges after she later learned that the male suspect told deputies that “he'd been looking for his wife and that God sent him to the elderly woman's address.”  (TheBlaze.com, 9/28/20)

A 63-year-old former New York police officer was standing outside her home on a Wednesday afternoon when a man attempted to mug her. She ordered the thief to back up, but he ignored her, and she ran to her house. Inside, the man yelled threats and chased her, threatening her with a cable box. When he pushed her up against a wall, she drew her .38-cal. service revolver and fired it at him, hitting him in the thigh. She detained him until police arrived and took the aggressor into custody, charging him with robbery and burglary. (NYPost.com, New York, N.Y., 08/19/20)
