Woman fights off intruder who is later arrested
10:46 AM MST on Wednesday, February 14, 2007
ONTARIO, Ore. -- An Oregon man is charged with attempted murder after a struggle inside a rural Ontario home.
Malheur County Sheriff's deputies say 38-year-old Christopher Scott Hardy entered the home of a 33-year-old woman.
She struggled with Hardy for control of his gun and she was able to fire all the rounds, escape and call 911 around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Deputies say the victim knew Hardy.
"Basically what she did is she saved her own life by deciding that she was going to fight and attempt to escape," said Brian Wolfe, Malheur County undersheriff.
Hardy was tracked to another home north of Ontario and arrested.
Back in 2000, he was convicted of attempted rape and several counts of sex abuse against two teenagers and served prison time.
Hardy’s being held in the Malheur County Jail.
Good on her. Too bad she did not turn his lights out.
She would probley be dead if she hadn't fought back. Too bad that one of the shots didn't get the bad guy right where it hurts the most. Its fantastic that the police got the BG. I sure hope he serves a full sentence with no time off.

Sounds like he definitely picked the wrong woman!! Good for her!

Sounds like my kind of woman. Shame she didn't get in a few good kicks to his male parts.
A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.
She probably would be dead if she hadn't fought.
She might have ended up as one of those "no one on the line" people in a 911 recording, had she thought that calling the police was the thing to do first, before fighting.
I just wish she'd had a gun of her own to start with. The would-be murderer would have been a dead man instead of a guest of the state--as it should be.
man, i love a good success story. i wonder if maybe she would consider carrying herself now.
What's this button do?
To bad she didn't empy the gun into him.
In 2000 he was convicted of another crime too....hmmm another criminal rehab success story!
