A Bullhead City, Ariz., man came to the rescue of another resident of his apartment complex when a suspicious man allegedly tried to stab the latter on Aug. 7, 2022. Around 4 a.m. that early Sunday morning, the suspicious man caught the attention of the other resident as he was looking inside cars in the parking lot. The other resident, with baseball bat in hand, confronted the man and inquired as to what he was doing, to which the man replied that he was looking for cigarettes. The resident followed the man for several minutes, telling him to leave the property. The intruder refused, then threw rocks at the resident before producing a knife. The resident began to retreat, but the man followed, clutching the knife in his hand.

At this point, another resident of the complex took notice of the situation and came outside, where he discovered his fellow resident backpedaling as the knife-wielding intruder continued to advance on him. The second resident then produced a firearm and opened fire on the would-be assailant, encouraging the intruder to bound over a nearby wall. Two hours later, police were notified that the 19-year-old intruder had checked himself into a hospital for a gunshot wound to the leg. Police charged the offender with two counts each of attempted aggravated assault and criminal trespassing. (, Scottsdale, Ariz., 08/07/2022)

Closing up her Wichita, Ks., restaurant, Amanda Childs heard a noise outside the back door and thought one of the workers had been locked out. Glancing through the back window, the restaurant owner instead discovered a burglar tearing off a screen with a screwdriver. Grabbing her .38-cal. revolver, Childs ordered the burglar into the kitchen and held the man at gunpoint until police arrived. Wichita police Capt. Haden Henderson, in agreement with Childs' actions, said, "She's got a right to protect her property." (The Eagle-Beacon, Wichita, Ks.)
