Police say a man confronted Rose Ann Kozlowski and her 14-year-old
son at their home, then bound them with neckties in the master
bedroom, held them at knifepoint and threatened their lives. The
intruder began ransacking the home for jewelry and other valuables,
which he placed in the family's SUV. Meanwhile, Kozlowski managed to
free herself and untie her son. She retrieved her husband's
revolver, handed it to her son and locked the double doors to the
bedroom. The incensed intruder pushed at the doors, partially
opening them as he waved his knife. The teenager aimed his father's
pistol toward the opening between the doors and squeezed the
trigger. The armed robber dropped dead.
