Armed Woman Defends Herself Against Five Male Robbers

Armed Woman Defends Herself Against Five Male Robbers

A group of criminals got more than they bargained for when they attempted to rob and carjack a woman. What they weren’t expecting was for her to have a gun of her own.

A Florida woman was sitting in her vehicle around 2:25 AM on July 27th. She was approached by four or five male suspects. One man pointed a gun at her demanding that she get out of the car and hand over her purse and phone.

At the same time, another suspect accessed her car through the front passenger door and started rummaging through her personal property, demanding her keys, phone, and wallet.

This woman wasn’t going down without a fight and drew her own gun. That’s when a struggle ensued between both men and the woman. It is unclear if she got out of the car or what the other men were doing. But she was able to fend off the two men, and when the armed man came back at her, she fired a shot.

The group wasn’t prepared for that and fled the scene. No one was shot or injured in this incident.

I have to applaud this woman for having the courage to stand up to four or five suspects. I wouldn’t like those odds. We always talk about whether or not it is worth fighting back or drawing a gun when you are being robbed. Are your car, keys, and purse worth losing your life over? Well, in this case, the woman decided that it was worth it. Luckily, it had a good ending with no one being injured. But with 5-1, it could have ended very badly for her.

She’s sitting on the street that late and has not secured her doors? There’s a lot of stupid in this one and a lot of luck. But, I can’t help but think that there was something else going on.

It’s her car, she’s bothering no one. She pays taxes. They’re the ones messing with her. You have no idea what her job is. I work graveyard shift for patients in their home and yes, when patients are transferred to the E.R. it’s almost never at lunch or dinner time. So, if I have to follow the ambulance to the hospital at 1am, that’s what I have to do. Once my patient is stable and I’m free to leave, usually 1-3 hours later, it’s now 12-3 am (graveyard shift usually starts between 10p and 12a), then I get in my car, I start my car, pull my phone to enable the gps, as I don’t live in their areas and I FOLLOWED the ambulance to HIS/HER local hospital, not mine so I’m in a neighborhood I don’t recognize. Now, they probably came as if they were seeking information, she rolled her window down or she didn’t lock her doors immediately because she’s not thinking like a criminal because she’s not a criminal. Many people do this. I have done this. I have become vigilant because I’ve become a victim. Before that, I was one of those “It can’t happen to me because things like that don’t happen here” people until it did. Nothing else going on. I wouldn’t be surprised if she got that gun to ease the mind of someone else who loves her who talked her into it. Not everyone is all gung ho walking down the street ready to off the next dirty harry with the “make my day” attitude.

You seem to have slid into the role of ‘Monday morning quarterback.’ How do you know that those men were just interested in her belongings?
 
I was the victim of a very vicious beating and rape; my attacker attempted to murder me. The man seemed nice, but that mask was hiding a monster. When I am by myself, whether it is one man or a group of men, I never, ever, assume that they will not physically harm me. If all men ever did was rob people, there would be no rapes and no murders.
 
Yes, the circumstances of this particular incident are questionable. However, I’m going to surmise, from observing this regularly, that the woman was not aware that her car was unlocked, and she probably had her nose stuck in her phone, checking her social media accounts. If the men observed her lack of awareness, being the predators they are, she was a sitting duck, just waiting to be attacked.
 
Because I’ve already learned a very harsh lesson, I don’t sit in my car with the doors unlocked, nor do I have my phone out. My head is on a swivel, checking all my mirrors and watching everyone. Hopefully this woman learned a lesson, that she needs to be aware of her surroundings at all times.
