Heroic Husband Saves Wife From Robber

posted on September 23, 2015

A 76-year-old Indianapolis man did what any good husband would do when his wife was in danger—he stopped the threat.

An armed robber had broken into the man’s home just before 5 p.m. on Monday. Anthony Talley was attempting to rob the man’s 75-year-old wife and pointed a gun at her during the altercation. Unbeknownst to Talley, the husband had appeared from the back of the house and, seeing a gun trained on his wife, he pulled his own gun and fired. 

The 27-year-old robber was shot multiple times and remains in critical condition. No stranger to crime, Talley’s rap sheet had multiple open warrants for his arrest, including strangulation, dealing drugs, possession of a firearm without a license and resisting law enforcement. 

With one less bad guy now on the streets, hopefully the elderly couple can rest a bit easier at night.
