Courageous 75-Year-Old Man Thwarts 6 Muggers, Delivers Groin Kick to Armed Attacker
Hold my dentures and watch this! A courageous 75-year-old man took on not one, but 6 muggers, one of them armed, and won.
The elderly gentlemen told police in West Seneca, New York that six suspects tried to mug and rob him at a Wegman's. He said he was approaching his Kia in the parking lot when the suspects showed up, one with a gun.
Despite the 6 to 1 advantage, the old guy didn't stand down. Instead, he stood up for himself and took on the armed suspect, kicking him in the nuts. What a ball buster!
The victim reports he was able to thrwart the robbery attempt by kicking one of the male suspects in the groin at which point all six suspects fled north on foot on the railroad tracks to the east of Wegmans.
Police immediately surrounded the neighborhood and after an extensive search, that included a drone, 5 suspects were taken into custody: two juvenile females, two adult females, and one adult male. A gun was also recovered as evidence, that was never fired in the attempted robbery.
Contrary to rumors on social media, no shots were fired during this incident.
The five suspects face a multitude of charges including Menacing, Robbery, Criminal Possession of a Weapon, and Conspiracy.
