A woman and her son were driving around 11:30 a.m. when a vehicle cut them off and abruptly stopped in front of them. A man exited the vehicle, pulled the woman from her car and held a knife to her throat. When the woman's son got out of the car to confront his mother's attacker, he was reportedly punched in the face. A passerby witnessed the attack and stopped to intervene with his .40-cal. handgun. When the suspect saw the firearm, he quickly returned to his vehicle and drove off. The good Samaritan who had stopped to help was able to get the suspect's license plate number, which later resulted in the attacker's arrest. He was charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and assault and third degree battery. (WISTV.com, Richland County, SC, 6/5/13)

Four intruders entered a Virginia home armed and masked, ready to rob the victims. The homeowner pulled his firearm and hit an intruder, according to police. Others grabbed a second masked man and held him. Two of the intruders escaped. The residents were unharmed. The intruder who was shot was taken to the hospital and is expected to recover with charges pending. The second suspect was charged with robbery, use of a firearm in a felony, breaking and entering, and conspiracy to commit a felony. Police continue to search for the two who escaped.
