|Incident at a Glance|
|# of Suspects:||2||Shots Fired:||Unknown|
It’s probably one of the most terrifying scenarios most people could imagine. You’re coming home after a long shift at work, thankful to have made good tips that night in a bad economy.
The next thing you know you’re thrown to the ground, a gun is in your face and two thugs are pulling at your clothes and taking all of your belongings, including your hard earned money.
That’s exactly what happened to one Atlanta, GA are woman earlier this month.
Fortunately, in our story, there is a hero.
The woman’s neighbor, described as ‘ex-military’ heard the woman’s screams and acted instantly, grabbing a gun and coming to her aid.
The suspects fled as soon as the armed neighbor approached. The neighbor opened fire on the suspects, but they managed to make it to their getaway car parked nearby.
The car is described as 2013 Chevy Impala, light in color.
The woman described the terrifying ordeal to WSBTV,
“He pushed me straight down on my chest,” Mallory Hastings said.
“That’s when he started to reach in my shirt and tear at my shirt.”
“I had my hands straight up. When he put the gun to my face and I was just screaming “No, no, no, no, no,” Hastings said.
Thankfully, there was a good guy with a gun nearby.
Reports say the thieves got away with ~$300, an iPhone, a purse and the victim’s ID.
