73-Year-Old Fights Off Armed Robbery In Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – A 73-year-old man fought back when an armed robber tried to break in to his home in Colorado Springs.

Larry Kearney said the robber came to his door, pulled out a gun and demanded money. He then tried to enter his home. Kearney said that’s when he knocked the suspect into some bushes. The thief fought back and smashed him into the cement. The robber then ran away.

“They may push people around but they’re not going to push all of us around,” Kearney said. “Just because I’m old doesn’t mean I’m a push over.”

A neighbor’s surveillance camera captured the gunman getting into a Honda Civic.

Anyone with information is asked to call Colorado Springs police.

    Great job! Glad you weren’t hurt! Sounds like he needs a dose of lead poisoning.

    Rule #1 Never fight with old people they won’t fight.
    They will kill you.
