Two burglars were no match for an elderly Cleveland woman in a wheelchair and her gun.
“I put the gun up to the window of the door and I yelled, ‘Get off my property,’” Melinda Vandal said she told the two men.
One man was trying to come into her door and the other was cutting the screen on a window of her garage on July 10, she said.
One of the men apparently dropped a knife and they ran off when they saw Vandal toting the gun.
“It was last Monday morning around 10:30,” Vandal told Fox 8. “I looked at the door and there was a man, right there, right outside looking like he was going for my door.”
Police are looking into the incident but have made no arrests.
“It’s hard for me to relax or sleep because I keep seeing his face,” Vandal said.
She is now keeping her doors locked and her gun close.
“It never used to be like this around here,” Vandal said, noting she has lived in her home for more than 20 years. “I don’t want to ever hurt anyone, but I feel like I need to protect myself.”
