According to WSBTV, a woman in Memphis, Tennessee was pumping gas on Wednesday when an unknown man approached her. He pointed a gun at her twice during the attempted robbery, but she was not going down without a fight.
According to a police report, the woman was pumping gas Wednesday evening when an unknown man approached her. The suspect put a gun into her side and demanded her money and car keys, the report said.
The woman told police she pushed the gun away and turned to face the suspect.
Police said the man then pointed his gun at the victim’s chest, but she punched him in the face, grabbed the gun and hit the suspect in the face with it four times.
A second suspect then rushed toward the woman, and she hit him in the face with the gun one time, according to police.
The two suspects ran away, and no arrests have been made at this time, police said.
Even if the men have not been caught, this is still a great lesson for people. Even if you do not have a gun on you, that does not mean you cannot fight and defend yourself. Obviously every situation won’t work out quite like this one where you end up with the attacker’s weapon, but if you don’t stand up for yourself, then you’re just a sitting duck.
