Thugs case a pregnant woman’s house…::
It all happened in broad daylight on Monday afternoon. That’s when the first man walked up to her kitchen door and began pounding and ringing the doorbell. He was clearly checking to see if anyone was home.
The woman recalls, “He started ringing the doorbell, probably 50 times, fast — ding, ding, ding, ding!”
The woman, who is nine weeks pregnant, was feeling sick and was in her bed. Not expecting anyone to visit, she called her boyfriend and then phoned police.
Beat in mind – the men had ignored two dogs, including a pit bull. Getting a dog is the first thing most lefty hamsters suggest, rather than gunning up.
Anyway – dogs, locks and calling the cops didn’t work:
“About three minutes later, my dogs started barking again and I looked out the window and now there are two guys standing outside my home,” the woman recalled.
Within mere seconds, she heard the loud “bang” of the kitchen door being kicked open. With footsteps coming her way, she quietly stepped upstairs.
And what do you do when passive defense fails?
“So then I hustled up the stairs to grab our gun, and I came down and I loaded it and cocked it,” said the homeowner.
With a single pump of her 12-gauge shotgun, the would-be burglars bolted out the door and through the backyard.
“Yes, a shotgun racking is something you don’t forget if you’ve ever heard one. So, it frightened these two suspects off right away, they took off running,” said Coon Rapids Police Captain John Hattstrom.
Congratulations, law-abiding, armed and pregnant home-owner!
