Robber Sent Running By 79-Year-Old Man With A Concealed Firearm

posted on September 7, 2017

A 79-year-old man from Stanton, Texas, was leaving a convenience store last Friday afternoon when he heard someone speaking from behind him: “It would be best for you to give me the keys; I want your car.” Then there came threats of violence from the attacker, who happened to be armed with a handgun.

But this near-octogenarian, who was licensed to carry a gun, had no intention of giving up his automobile. According to KOSA-TV, the elderly man simply drew his concealed firearm, pointed it at the attacker, and sent the mugger scrambling out of the parking lot on foot.

The victim was able to give police a detailed description of his assailant, and in a matter of minutes, 24-year-old Andrew Yanez was apprehended just a few blocks away. Yanez has been charged with attempted robbery and felony possession of a firearm.
