An 88-year-old Ripley, Mississippi, woman was just trying to help
out a stranger who had knocked on her door and asked to use the
telephone. But once she opened the door, the stranger forced his way
into the house, raped her, and robbed her of $50. The woman somehow
managed to get away from her tormentor and found her handgun, firing
at the suspect three times and sending him fleeing from the house.
With a clear description from the victim, the police immediately
suspected 19-year-old Ryan Burks because of his prior runins with
the law. Minutes later, when police arrived at Burks' grandmother's
house, they found Burks bleeding from a gunshot wound under his arm.
Burks has been charged with burglary and rape. The unnamed victim
was treated and released from the hospital.
