Man Turns Tables on Attempted RobberAnd this one with a little more detail.DAYTON, Ohio -- Police said a man acted in self-defense on Saturday when he shot a 24-year-old who tried to rob him at gunpoint.
"Little did this kid know that this 72-year-old man was a licensed CCW (carrying a concealed weapon) carrier and he produced his own firearm and defended himself because he was in fear of his life," said Sgt. John Sullivan of the Dayton Police Department.
Sullivan said the 24-year-old cut in front of the 72-year-old in the area of Brooklyn Avenue in Dayton. He said the 24-year-old got out of his vehicle with an assault rifle, pointed it at the 72-year-old and tried to rob him.
That's when the 72-year-old pulled out his weapon and shot the robber twice, once in the abdomen and once in the arm. The robber is expected to survive his injuries.
Police didn't expect to file charges against the 72-year-old. They said the attempted robber would face a charge of aggravated robbery.
24-year-old shot while allegedly trying to rob elderly man faces chargesDAYTON — Police said Montgomery County prosecutors have approved aggravated robbery charges against a man who attempted to rob an elderly man at the point of an AK-47 assault rifle, only to be shot and wounded by his would-be victim.
Lt. Brian Johns said the suspect, Phillip D. Anderson, 24, is under armed guard at Miami Valley Hospital, where he is in stable condition.
Police said Anderson blocked the elderly man’s vehicle with his own, then got out with the AK-47 and approached the man, who drew a handgun and shot Anderson twice. The incident occurred Saturday, Sept. 19, at West Third Street and Brooklyn Avenue.
The wounded suspect fled in his vehicle, which was later found outside 109 Brooklyn Ave. with the AK-47 inside, Johns said. Anderson was dropped off at Miami Valley Hospital by an unknown person, he said.
The robbery victim, who is in his 70s, is licensed to carry a concealed weapon, Johns said, adding he expects no charges to be filed against the man.

Always brings a smile to my face when people stand up and fight back. Bet the criminal thinks twice before attempting that one again.
Better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees.
Nice! Wish they would have said the calibur of the pistol.
72 year old with pistol beats 24 year old with AK-47.
Who do you think was the more determined of the two?
Ummm... I'm thinking the old guy who wanted to live!

There's only 1 way this story could've ended better, & that would've been with a footnote to the story announcing the details for the memorial services to be held for 24 yr. old Mr. Phillip D. Anderson!
This is why we need tougher hand gun regulations. If the 70 year old man could not own / carry a weapon this young 24 year old good kid, who probably has never done anything wrong in his life would not have been injured. :)
Nice way to fight back against adversity. AK v. handgun. Yikes!

Oh wow, the police "don't expect" any charges against the 72 year old defending his life. Aren't the powers that be in NY sooooooo generous?

I keep saying it but it true! "It is not the size of the gun but the fight and willingness in the heart that really counts." Thud not willing to die to take what is not his just looking for something easy and ran into 72 year old who was willing to fight. Job well done !!!!!!
