Oklahoma Senior Uses Firearm To End Robbery

posted on April 3, 2015

84-year-old Doug Jandebeur of Tulsa, Okla., was getting into his truck when an unidentified man punched him in the head and took his wallet. When Jandebeur saw the robber heading toward the door of the shop where his wife was, he pulled his concealed pistol, causing the much younger and much larger assailant to flee at a dead run. Police did not apprehend the suspect at the scene, but his face was caught on a nearby surveillance camera. The senior citizen later explained, “Anybody who doesn't arm themselves is asking for trouble.”
