Elderly Lady Fights Back, Scares Home Invader Away

When a stranger tried to force his way inside the house of a Florida woman, things didn’t go as planned.

The suspect knocked at the door of the house in Coral Springs on April 27th, around 9 p.m.

When the owner, an elderly woman, answered, he tried to push her out of his way and get inside.

But the senior citizen put one hell of the fight. The struggle exhausted the wannabe invader so much that he decided it would be safer to just run away — and he did.

The police released the details to the public on April 29th since they are now searching for the suspect, The Sun-Sentinel reports.

He’s described as a man in his mid-20s, with a dark complexion, around 5’8″, medium-built, with dreadlocks and a goatee. The doorbell camera shows him wearing a hoodie and sweatpants during the attempted break-in.

It is not clear if the man managed to grab anything of value from the house. The incident occurred on Northwest 27th Drive, and the suspect took off towards Riverside Drive.

Anyone who recognizes this man or has any information about the break-in is asked to call Detective Frank Randazzo at 954-346-1262 or email frandazzo@coralsprings.org.

Anonymous tips can be given to Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477 and online at browardcrimestoppers.org.

Christopher is the head of the Crimes and Accidents News department. He’s a third-generation New Yorker with a passion for journalistic objectivity. Christopher (always "Christopher", never "Chris!) grew up living every kid's dream: his father owned a comic book shop in East Brooklyn. But don't presume that the heroic characters in spandex were the ones who made him fascinated with the Crime vs Punishment concept. Christopher was more interested in the non-superhero comics like Tank Girl and Maus. In the 8th grade he already knew what he was about to do in this life, which was investigative journalism that he would later successfully study in Columbia. Christopher then returned to New York to work as a stringer. Those adrenaline-filled times were equally nerve-wracking and amazing; the only thing that made him settle down was marrying his beloved wife of 10 years. Crime reporting remains Christopher's specialty and biggest passion. That, and not being called "Chris". old@regionalusa.com
