Bulletin, Philadelphia, PA

Saturday, April 1, 1961

When the customer at the counter in Mrs. Daisy Parker's Philadelphia luncheonette menaced her with hand in pocket and announced a stickup, Mrs. Parker edged away, grabbed her cal. .32 revolver from under the counter, and came up firing. Three shots sent the bandit lurching out the door. After picking him up, police closed a second case when another robbery victim identified him.
