I love the fact that grandma and grandpa jumped in... that made my day!A robbery suspect was rescued by officers after his intended victims disarmed him, beat him with a metal broomstick and were about to whack him with a shovel, authorities said.
Police officers who were summoned to the home late Tuesday said they found the suspect, identified as Darrel Rolle, 27, lying on the living-room floor as Wu Ni's family held him down.
"He was so exhausted, we had to help him walk to the patrol car," Sheriff's Deputy Brian Barnes said.
Ni, a restaurant cook, told officers that he, his wife, his parents and other family members were returning to the home when he was confronted in the master bedroom by a man pointing a gun and shouting, "Give me the money!"
Ni said the man forced him to his knees and was taking cash from another family member when Ni grabbed his arm and took the gun away.
But that was just the start of the melee. According to the police report, Ni's parents and a cousin jumped on Rolle, and the combatants moved to the living room, where Ni's wife, Rong Lin, pummeled Rolle with a metal broomstick.
When the broomstick bent, Rong Lin got a shovel from the backyard, but Barnes and a second officer arrived before Rolle could get hit with the shovel, authorities said.
"When we walked into the living room, the family let Rolle go," Barnes said. "We were able to cuff him without incident."
The gun turned out to be a pellet gun, police said.
Rolle was treated at a hospital for scratches and a bite on his ear and then taken to jail. He was charged with armed robbery, burglary and battery. Wu Ni was treated at the scene for cuts and a bite on his arm.
Hinesville police could not say Thursday whether Rolle had an attorney.
God bless 'em!!!

I bet he played the game "Whack-A-Mole".
I'm glad that everything turned out ok for them.
Thats excellent. Good to see people putting up a fight.
Don't ya just love it when things turn out the way they are supposed to be!!!
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.
Their names make me think that they are recent immigrants from SE Asia, a region where people are still not programmed to be sheep. They are fighters.
Cool, never mess with a woman with a METAL broomstick !!!!
An excellent example of how many can outwit, overtake, and defang a hyena with a gun.
More people should react as such and we wouldn't have crap like the PA quaker school shooting happening.
And once again the truism that 'everything is a weapon' is proven to be truthful and beneficial.
This is exactly what should happen when a scumbag criminal decides to victimize a family. Family defense is a family affair. They should look after their own -- this family has reason to be proud of its unity and determinedness of purpose.
The story says that Wu Ni works as a restaurant cook -- anyone think he's a rich man? It's heartening when a hard-working joe (you know a restaurant cook busts his butt for his paycheck!) triumphs over a piece of garbage who wants to take what little he has.
Way to go, family!
