Texas Grandmother Chases Off Armed Home Invader With Her Pistol

posted on January 6, 2017

A 74-year-old grandmother sat down to watch the evening news last Sunday, but wound up seeing something quite different. A man wearing a mask and gloves was breaking into her home, and coming at her with a gun. Fortunately, she had a backup plan—the firearm she keeps on a nearby table. 

“I didn't know if he was going to kill me or what,” Rebbie Roberson told KSLA News 12. “I reached and grabbed this gun. And when I swerved around, I pointed it at him and he ran.” 

Roberson chased the intruder, firing her gun and leaving bullet holes in the walls. “I’m not sure I didn't hit him. … I sure tried,” she said; however, police don’t believe the armed invader was struck. Either way, Bowie County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Jeff Neal has no problem with the pistol-toting grandma, saying, “Every citizen, per the Texas penal code, has the right to defend themselves and their family.”
