“I heard her holler, ‘Azeal! Azeal!’ Then he left her room and came into mine,” Azeal said.
News 4 reports that a man had gotten into the home through a sliding window and walked into Samella’s bedroom.
“I asked him, ‘What the hell are you doing in here?’ He stood up and started hollering, ‘Give me your money!’ I told him, ‘I don’t have no damn money,'” said Azeal.
Azeal said it was his wife’s struggle with the intruder that eventually scared him off.
“They started tussling. My wife hit him and he hit her upside the head. She was hollering loud enough for everybody in the neighborhood to hear, then that’s when he ran out,” said Azeal.
She also hit the home invader in the head with her makeup bag.
Azeal said this all would’ve turned out differently if he’d had his gun.
“If I had had my gun ready I would have said nothing to him, blοwn his brains out,” he said.
This is certainly not the first case of the elderly being targeted in Michigan.
In July, an elderly man who’d been victimized by robbers mistakenly fired shots at a news crew.
An 88 year old Detroit man, who’d been beαten and tοrtured by robbers, found himself in trouble with the law over his reaction to reporters who arrived at the man’s home to question him about the robbery.
The man had previously been lured to the door by two women asking for help, but when the elderly man went to the door, two robbers pushed their way into his home. So when a reporter from Fox 2 in Detroit arrived at the man’s home to ask him questions about the incident, he became suspicious, believing the scenario was being played out all over again.
