Sebron Mitchell, 91, was at his Augusta, Georgia, home one
Saturday when he suffered an attack at the hands of a man who was
many years his junior. According to Mitchell, the man "tore the door
down," choked him several times and put a butcher knife to his
throat, demanding money. The elderly resident fought back while
urging that the pair "go find some money." When the burglar began
rifling a drawer that had fallen to the floor, Mitchell grabbed a
.32-cal. revolver and fired, wounding the intruder and sending him
fleeing. The incident marked the third time Mitchell had been
targeted for robbery. His attacker was arrested, treated at a local
hospital and then sent to jail.
