JONESBORO — A woman with combat experience in Iraq fought off a couple of armed robbers at the Jonesboro pizza business where she is a manager.
When the robbers entered the Papa John's where Rebecca Foster works, she pulled the ski mask off of one of them, while the other robber cornered a delivery driver.
The unmasked robber hit Foster on the side of the head, and Foster then pushed the robber. The robber fired a shot, which hit a piece of pipe and didn't hurt anyone.
The robbers wound up leaving with $15 and a pizza bag from the driver. Police are looking for the suspects.
Foster says that in the five months she's been back from Iraq, she has been in two car crashes, and now she's been robbed and shot at. In Foster's words, "home is more dangerous than Iraq."
