A 27-year-old man armed with a gun entered a rental office in the Eastside section of Indianapolis, Ind. and attempted to rob the 75-year-old woman inside. The woman’s 73-year-old husband was in another part of the building at the time, but became aware of the robbery and retrieved a gun. Coming to his wife’s defense, the husband fired at the criminal, striking him several times and putting an end to the threat.
According to a local media outlet, the robber faced multiple arrest warrants, for dealing drugs, strangulation, and illegal firearms possession. (The Indianapolis Star, Indianapolis, Ind. 09/22/15)
