Post-Tribune, Gary, IN

Wednesday, April 1, 1964

Mrs. Anna Roscoe was tending her Gary, Ind., store as three armed women entered and announced a stickup. Mrs. Roscoe said in a loud voice, "So you have revolvers." Her husband, Thomas, grabbed a cal. .38 pistol and entered from a back room. When the female bandits, who were dressed as men, saw the gun they rushed to the door. Roscoe fired one shot and one robber dropped to the floor with a bullet in the shoulder. Roscoe held her at gun point until police arrived.
