When an intruder whom police later identified as a criminal
with sixteen arrests, including for burglary and rape, confronted
stockbroker Robert E. Scharf and his wife one Saturday evening in
the Scharfs' fifth-floor New York City apartment, Scharf demanded,
"What are you doing here?" The intruder lunged at him, Scharf said,
with a 5-inch-blade knife. Scharf fired twice with a .38 pistol.
The second bullet wounded the intruder severely. Police arrested
Scharf and took him to the station house on a charge of illegal
possession of a pistol.
