Burglars Invade Home of Competitive Axe Thrower - Oops
From LosAngeles.CBSLocal.com -
Hemet California - woman who awoke to find a burglar at her bedside Saturday turned the tables on the intruder by brandishing an ax.
Robyn Irvine said she was asleep in bed with her cat when she heard a clicking sound and awoke to feel a stranger trying to remove the watch from her wrist.
“He was kneeled down right here face-to-face with me,” Irvine said. – Breaking and entering is a bad idea. Choosing the home of a former ax-throwing competitor, worse. She grabbed the weapon she keeps by her side at all times. “He froze at first. I shocked him with my voice and then he took off. There was no way I could’ve caught him but I could’ve thrown it,” said Irvine, adding that she could have paralyzed the suspect by striking him in the spine.
Hemet police arrested 22-year-old Nicholas Uolla on suspicion of burglary and said they found several items in his possession belonging to Irvine.
She has since boarded up her front door and warns burglars that next time could be their last.
“If you’re in my house, you’re not walking out,” she said.
