Mowing her lawn one otherwise-normal Thursday afternoon in Bibb County, Ga., a 67-year-old woman was tackled by a naked 25-year-old man. The deranged 25-year-old succeeded at knocking her off the riding lawnmower and began assaulting her. The woman’s 66-year-old husband saw what was going on and tried to pull the attacker off. The deranged man then started to assault the husband but stopped and turned his attention back to the woman. The husband took advantage of the assailant’s distraction, retrieved his firearm and shot the suspect in the chest, killing him. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital and listed in stable condition. Her husband had minor wounds and was treated at the scene. No charges were expected to be brought against the husband.
