Sunday, March 1, 1981

George Rayburn and his son were listening to a police scanner radio in their River Rouge, Mich., home when they heard that officers were chasing a trio of muggers toward their address. Rayburn grabbed a .357 Mag. revolver and leveled it at one of the lawbreakers, who was attempting to scale a wall into the Rayburn backyard. Only after police arrived and arrested the mugger, did Rayburn, a Marine combat veteran, reveal that he is almost blind.
