Alfred and Sylvia Armen were tending to their music store, Armen’s House of Music, in Bethel Park, Pa. when a man, who had just been inside the store, returned with a club. The criminal struck 71-year-old Sylvia in the head, prompting a physical altercation between 73-year-old Alfred and the attacker. During the struggle, Alfred was able to retrieve a .38-caliber revolver and shoot the criminal, killing him.

Sylvia and Alfred suffered minor injuries during the incident, but Sylvia assured local media that she is “a tough cookie.” (The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Pittsburgh, Pa. 04/28/13)
