If you’re ever confronted by an assailant in your garage, you may have any number of highly effective weapons within your reach. A woman in Indianapolis identified as Carol found that out soon enough when she arrived home in February of 2016.
A man was waiting in her garage. The 52-year-old questioned what the man wanted. He said he had a gun and demanded her purse.
She replied he could have the purse and it was in her car. Then he lunged at and grabbed her—pinning her against a toolbox (big mistake!).
“So I grabbed a staple gun and smacked him on the side of the head,” the story at fox6now.com quotes Carol. “He went down to his knees.”
The man must have been pretty hard-headed because the blow didn’t keep him from charging her a second time. However, Carol grabbed two staple guns and told him, “I will crush your skill in if you touch me again.”
The bleeding man left.
How to Protect Yourself
Do not hesitate to deliver a second blow if he comes at you after the first blow.
