New Orleans Woman Stops Intruder With Knife, Then Her Gun

posted on January 10, 2017

When Deangelo Adams forced his way into a woman’s home just after 5 a.m. last week, she grabbed a huge knife from the kitchen. After a brief struggle, she managed to chase him away, and you would hope that would be enough to end the ordeal. 

Unfortunately, you would be wrong. 

A bit later, Adams paid a second visit to the woman’s house—but this time she pulled out her firearm. After shooting two rounds at the intruder, he scampered away again, ending the encounter once and for all. 

Or perhaps not. Amazingly, Adams returned a third time, carrying a gun of his own. This time he was arrested by New Orleans police detectives who had arrived at the scene moments earlier. The third time was evidently the charm for this homeowner, but obviously not for would-be criminal Deangelo Adams.
