Teen attempts to rob 84 year old man at knifepoint

Unfortunately for the teenage shitheel, his intended victim turns out to be a Marine.

Police: Teen makes mistake of trying to rob former U.S. Marine
Bay City News Service


SANTA ROSA - A boy in his mid-teens learned Wednesday afternoon that it is not a good idea to try to rob a former U.S. Marine at knifepoint, even if the former Marine is 84 years old, police said today.

Santa Rosa police Sgt. Steve Bair said that's what happened around 2 p.m. in the 1600 block of Fourth Street. The elderly man was walking with a grocery bag in each arm when the boy approached him with a large knife, Bair said.

The boy said, "Old man, give me your wallet or I'll cut you," Bair said. The man told the boy he was a former Marine who fought in three wars and had been threatened with knives and bayonets, Bair said.

The man then put his bags on the ground and told the boy that if he stepped closer he would be sorry. When the boy stepped closer, the man kicked him in the groin, knocking him to the sidewalk, Bair said. The ex-Marine picked up his grocery bags and walked home, leaving the boy doubled over, Bair said.

The man reported the attempted robbery to police 45 minutes later.

Bair said the teen is described only as 15 or 16 years old. Anyone with information is asked to call the Police Department.

Who says there's no good news? Hopefully he crushed the little shit's castanets, leaving the teen unable to reproduce.

When you are 84, and have survived three wars, nothing scares you any more.

If any Otters live in or near Santa Rosa, you should track down this guy and buy him a beer!

At 84 years old, I would have just went ahead and killed the kid.

There was a great story about an RAF vet who did this too, maybe 2-3 years ago.

Too bad he let the kid get away with just a kick to the nuts.

Awesome tactic, though. I would love to see a video of that.

The old man should have done more to the kid, just to teach the little douche a lesson.

It is so much more awesome to just kick the kid, pick up your bags and walk casually away than it would have been for him to kick the crap out of the kid.

I don't know, both ways could have been awesome.

Good story, but he should have taken the knife and given it to the cops though...

yep...

as primates adapt and alter behaviors...

he will most likely learn immediate, overwhelming violence as a better approach next time...

still cool of the old guy... the Marines are awesome...

"So they've got us surrounded, good! Now we can fire in any direction, those bastards won't get away this time!" - Major Chesty Puller, USMC at the Battle for Henderson Field, where the 1st Battalion, 7th marines was alone in defending the airfield against a regiment-strength Japanese force. In a firefight on the night of October 24, 1942 lasting about three hours, the 1st 7th took 70 casualties; the Japanese force suffered over 1,400 killed in action, and the battalion held the airfield. (he repeated a similar quote at the Chosin Reservior in Korea)
