The Register, Orange County, CA, 10/22/88

Sunday, January 1, 1989

Susan Galewick was home alone when she observed a man unfastening a window screen at her Orange, Calif., residence. She quickly called 911, then grabbed her husband's pistol just as the intruder appeared at the bedroom door. The 24-year-old woman pointed the gun at him, and he pleaded with her not to shoot him before fleeing. The man, who had a lengthy criminal record, was shortly arrested. "I want other women to know at least a gun is good protection," Galewick told the press.
