A good Samaritan came to the rescue in Cape Coral, Fla., when a man aggressively followed three woman from a local bar into the streets. The man was acting strange towards the women inside the bar, and when they left the man stalked them. In distress the women yelled for help on the side of the road to a passing truck, which pulled over for them. The driver let the women climb in and the man began to walk up to the truck. When the man approached the truck, the driver warned that he was armed and to stay away. The man then went to his own truck and chased down the truck with the women inside.
The man then passed the truck, moved in front of it, then proceeded to back up and ram the truck repeatedly. The driver of the truck responded to the assault by firing several rounds with a handgun into the man’s tailgate. The driver then held the man at gunpoint until police arrived. Police ruled that the driver was acting in self-defense for himself and the three women the man was stalking. The man was charged with four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for ramming the other truck with his own. (Fox 4 Now, Cape Coral, Fla., 01/24/2020)

Steve Menich, a disabled veteran, was sleeping alone at his Ohioville, Pa., home when the burglar alarm sounded. Armed with a pistol, Menich slowly searched the house. When he opened the cellar door, he was attacked by several intruders. Struck on the head and knocked to the floor, Menich still managed to fire several rounds at the intruders, who quickly fled.
