James Rowlan, 70, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, had just
finished taking a shower one evening and his wife, Fannie, was
following suit when someone rang the front doorbell and knocked
loudly. Rowlan went to check and met a youth poking his head inside
to survey the home and asking if "Mike" lived there. Before Rowlan
had time to let his suspicions turn to warnings, the armed youth and
an accomplice broke the storm door lock and barged inside. That's
when Rowlan instructed his wife to barricade herself in the bathroom
and pretended to watch helplessly as the robbers ransacked the
couple's bedroom. Little did they know Rowlan had inched toward the
nightstand where he kept a gun for protection. "Their gun was much
smaller. So they were scared off by my husband's gun," said Fannie
Rowlan after the ordeal. The two thugs "took off so fast they broke
the chain on the storm door," said James Rowlan.
