Two thugs in their 30s—a man and a woman—were no match for a 60-year-old woman when they attempted a home invasion. Local news reports said police discovered that the man attempted to break into the woman’s home through a window but was interrupted by the homeowner. The intruder reportedly shot once at the homeowner, prompting her to return fire. Neither party was injured during the exchange of gunfire. The woman reportedly then locked herself in a bedroom and called 9-1-1. Responding officers arrested the man after discovering him in the home’s basement. The female accomplice was arrested at a future date. The male intruder, 35, stands charged with four felonies: one count of assault with intent to murder, one count of first-degree home invasion, and two counts of felony firearms. His bond was set at $500,000. The female accomplice, 33, faces charges of two felonies: first-degree home invasion and carrying a concealed weapon. She has a cash or surety bond of $10,000. Police did not disclose the nature of the pair’s relationship. (; Negaunee, Mich.; 9/19/23)
