    Police: Victims fight back against armed robber

    By Manuel Gamiz Jr., OF THE MORNING CALL

    2:25 PM EDT, July 8, 2010

    Two robbery victims turned the tables on their armed mugger early Thursday, beating him up, taking his gun and sending him running for cover, Stroud Area Regional police said.

    That's when police took over, arresting Jairo J. Mugaburu, 22, of Stroudsburg, a short distance away.

    Police said the two victims, ages 23 and 21, were walking home at 12:48 a.m. Thursday and going through a cemetery in Stroudsburg when a man stepped out from the darkness and pulled a gun on them.

    The man demanded the two men give up the money, but instead the 23-year-old robbery victim lunged at the gunman and they began fighting. The robber dropped his gun and the 21-year-old victim grabbed it, police said. The robber ran off, but not before one of the victims bit him in the right bicep, police said.

    Police arrived and scoured the area looking for the suspect. Troopers with the state police's Swiftwater barracks assisted in the search. Mugaburu was found on N. Sixth Street.

    Both victims identified Mugaburu as the person who tried to rob them, police said, and he had a bite mark on his right bicep.

    The neat thing here is that Mcall magazine ain't exactly a paragon for 2nd Amendment rights. Neither do they advocate fighting back against criminals.

    Taking a bite out of crime...too bad they didn't end his career with the 'new found' weapon. Oh well, all's well that ends well...

    human bites can be more dangerous than dog bites; it can be considered a lethal weapon. although if you bite somebody with HIV/Hep C, you are also SOL.

    I agree fully!!!!
    NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
    I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.
