The Armed Citizen

A woman in Oklahoma City, Okla., allowed a 39-year-old man, who coached youth baseball in the area for several years, to stay with her and her 12-year-old daughter. But, after falling asleep the night of Jan. 13, she woke up to find the man raping her daughter. She stopped the assault by holding the man at gunpoint until police arrived. The investigation revealed that the man was HIV-positive, had assaulted the girl numerous times—including on her birthday—and had not used any protection. According to reports, he was to be charged with lewd molestation, rape by instrumentation, first-degree rape, exposing others to AIDS and pattern of criminal offenses. (, Kansas City, Mo., 1/22/24)

Three armed men in Houston, Texas, reportedly exited a white SUV and rushed toward a man as he was leaving his car to go into his home the night of Jan. 28. A person inside the home heard the commotion, however, looked outside, and saw his family member being held at gunpoint. The person inside told someone to call 911 and fired his gun at the assailants to end their attack. Two of the suspects fled in the vehicle and the third on foot. A police dog quickly located the suspect who had not gotten into the vehicle; he was transported to the hospital with at least one gunshot wound and stabilized. Police were still searching for the other suspects at the time of reporting. (, Houston, Texas, 1/28/24)
