90-Year-Old Business Owner Fights Off Robber
DAYTON, Ohio (WKRC) -- A 90-year-old store owner defends his business by fighting back against a man who was trying to rob him.
A man in a hoodie walked into a laundromat in Dayton and demanded the owner give him some cash. But, 90-year-old George Hicks did more than just say no. He grabbed his gun and chased the robber out the door.
Then, he called 9-1-1.
Dispatcher: "Did he take any money?"
Hicks: "No. No. When he shoved me, I jumped up and went for my gun and when I went for my gun I said I'll blow your BLEEP brains out and he was gone."
This isn't the first time the business owner has been targeted. He was beaten up and robbed inside his laundromat in 2010; he was not armed then.
