Would-be mugger surprised by gun-toting victim

An armed robber targeted a man who had just made a withdrawal from a cash machine, but the victim turned the tables. 

Sierra McFatridge was out in her yard Monday night when she heard a crack of gunfire and came face to face with a robber.

"I was just outside getting my dog and then you just hear this shot, and I see this guy falling right in front of me," McFatridge said. "I didn't know where the shot came from and then he was right there. It scared me."

Police said a 51-year-old man was walking in the Jackson Park neighborhood when the robber hit him in the head.

Neighbors said the man told them he had been at an ATM up the street, and he had just withdrawn cash. He was walking home when the robber attacked. 

"He was obviously following him from the bank because he knew he had money on him," McFatridge said.

The robber's weapon was a rock. It was the victim who had the gun.

"Hit the guy with a rock in his head, and the guy who got hit with the rock fired," said Gina Sarabia, McFatridge's mother.

"He didn't expect that guy to have a gun," Sarabia said.

The robber got away. A neighbor spotted a woman in a getaway car and gave police the license plate number.

"It's scary. It really is. I mean that's my daughter," Sarabia said. She's just thankful her daughter wasn't hit.

"I am a little leery about people having guns in front of my house walking down the street, but in reality he defended himself. That's why we have concealed carry," Sarabia said.

Police said the victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The district attorney will review the case to decide if the victim was justified in firing his gun.
