If you find yourself being mugged or robbed, authorities recommend not arguing or fighting with your attacker, but rather giving them the money or items they’re looking for. Money is replaceable, as experts say.
But two New Jersey sisters, aged 93 and 94, fought back against an attacker who tried to steal their car. And they beat him off.
As reported in the New Jersey Star-Ledger newspaper, the two sisters, who have not been named, were attacked by 27 year-old Sergio Fernando Solorzano-Vasquez of Trenton, New Jersey. When the two sisters returned from a pharmacy on Sunday morning and got into their car, Solorzano-Vasquez was sitting in the back seat.
To ward their attacked off, they kicked and screamed until he fled the scene, although he was later arrested by police.
“Very tough elderly women,” local police officer James Stevens told the news source.
Although these two women were fortunate enough to scare off their attempted carjacker, law enforcement authorities still recommend that people protect themselves before trying to protect their possessions.
Still, if these two elderly sisters ever decide to move into an assisted living community, they could easily find work as the community’s security patrol. After all, would you mess with them?
