Video store owner David Ragan had to react quickly one
Friday afternoon when a 6-foot, 2-inch, razor-wielding "customer"
appeared at his counter. After the man grabbed him, Ragan dropped
to his knees, sliding out of his loose-fitting shirt. He used his
left hand to hit the panic button and with his right hand grabbed
his gun, which he is licensed to carry. A customer walking in the
store minutes later found the 5-foot, 9-inch Ragan naked from the
waist up and staring down at the man who was now spread-eagled on
the floor. Ragan, who has a history of positive community activism,
was quoted as saying, "I don't want to be killed but I'm not going
to take it. It's going to take more of us fighting back to send a
message to these criminals that you can't get away with this." The
suspect was arrested six minutes after the incident by police and
was charged with first-degree robbery, possession of a deadly weapon
during a felony and carrying a concealed deadly weapon, according to
state police spokesman Cpl. Preston Lewis.
