Two robbery attempts by the same ill-fated crook in one hour
at homes just blocks from each other were thwarted by homeowners
with guns. The intruder entered the first home wearing a mask and
armed with a large knife. He threatened the homeowner in his
bedroom; the man drew a pistol and ordered the interloper to stop.
The invader fled and moved on to the second home. After breaking
and entering--thus alerting the armed homeowner therein--the man
began moving through the house. The second homeowner encountered
the thug and ordered him to drop the knife. The knife-wielding
intruder advanced on the armed citizen and was shot in the neck.
Police were called to the scene of both homes and the suspect was
arrested at the second one. Neither homeowner was charged.
