Two Men Pay The Price After Attempting To Rob A 67-Year-Old Man In The Woods

Poor prior planning leads to… well, not a good performance (that is not really the complete saying, but we will keep it G-rated!).

This is an old army saying my dad used to say all the time when I was growing up.

The would-be robber in this story clearly never heard that saying.

He and a friend showed up to rob someone with a fake gun and a stick.

One assailant wore a mask and came up to a 67-year-old man in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania.

The robber was reportedly in his late teens, or early twenties then held a pellet gun up and pointed it in the older man’s face.

The gunman’s friend stood nearby with his stick.

There was a brief physical altercation between the gunman and the older man.

The victim then pulled out a real gun – and shot the attacker straight in the head. He died on scene.

The victim has a ‘concealed weapons license’ and has no previous criminal record.

He was taken to the hospital after the incident complaining of chest pains.

He is going to make a full recovery. The dead man’s accomplice fled the scene and is still missing.

The older man will not be charged with any crime in the incident.

The police stated that the man thought the toy gun was real and that his actions were self-defense.

You can’t be too careful these days.

You shouldn’t try to rob someone just because you think they are old and frail. They could be carrying!
