Mom, Sons Fight Off Intruder With Sword, Buy A Gun The Next Day

posted on August 30, 2016

When single mother Sara Ward and her two sons heard their dog barking at the front door of their Battle Creek, Mich., home, they never expected what came next.

As Sara went to the door, 11-year-old Reese grabbed his samurai sword and leaned it nearby just in case. That turned out to be a good decision, as a man with a bandana covering his face kicked in the door and entered the home. As Sara and Reese tried to push the man back outside, 14-year-old Skyler, who was getting out of the shower, heard the melee, grabbed the sword and ran at the man, swinging the sword and sending him fleeing.

Realizing how lucky they were to escape the home invasion unscathed, Sara went out the next day and bought a gun. “Honestly that’s the only reason I felt safe coming back to this home is because I knew that if it happened again I would be able to protect my children,” she told local media. “I think that that really contributed to them feeling safe enough to come back home, too.”
