Saturday, May 1, 1999

A 76-year-old Ypsilanti, Michigan, woman found herself facing a knife-wielding, black-clad robber who broke into her house, threw her to the floor, and demanded money and valuables. Handing the culprit about $200 in cash allowed the woman time to crawl away and retrieve a handgun. When she turned the gun on the man, he screamed and begged for his life, then fled. Unhurt, the woman had to make her way to a neighbor's house to summon police after discovering that the thief had cut her phone line.
