Folks, you don’t have to be a helpless victim.
Empower yourself. Become a gun owner. Get training.
This applies to your loved ones as well. Help them empower themselves. Help them become a gun owner and to get training. Would anyone want this to happen to their mother / grandmother? Have you done anything to help them resist an attack such as this?
Rape victim survived ‘horrific’ attack, police say
Teen charged with attack on 93-year-old
Anderson, IN (The Herald Bulletin) — Amelia Rudolf, 93, has been staying with family since July 16, when she was subjected to what Anderson Police Chief Larry Crenshaw called a “horrific and unimaginable” attack in her own home.
“I would like to go back because it’s the house that my husband built for me and my family,” Rudolf said Monday afternoon during a news conference at the Anderson Police Department. “And I’ve been happy there all my life until just now.”
But Rudolf’s not sure that she’ll be able to go back after a man broke into her home that night in July and sexually assaulted her. Maybe after some time has passed, she said.
Her alleged attacker, Iquise V. Taylor, 17, was arrested Friday and, already incarcerated at the Madison County Youth Center, waived onto adult court. Taylor was formally charged Monday with rape, criminal confinement, strangulation, burglary and violation of probation.
The attack happened after midnight on July 16 in Rudolf’s home, in the 3600 block of Hamilton Place in the Polish Acre neighborhood.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Taylor kicked in Rudolf’s locked back door and confined her to the bed, covering her mouth with his hand and assaulting her. Nothing was reported stolen from the home and nothing was vandalized.
…Taylor, who initially denied the attack during an interview in early August, did provide a DNA sample to police that matched DNA taken from Rudolf, the affidavit said.
And then there’s this story.
New Haven, CT (New Haven Register) – Police arrested a 35-year-old New Haven man on gun charges among others after an allegedly unprovoked attack on a 71-year-old man.
Jorge DelaPaz was arrested on charges of assault in the third degree of an elderly person, carrying a dangerous weapon, carrying a pistol without a permit, criminal posession of a pistol and interfering with police.
Police say on Sunday, Aug. 25, the elder New Haven man was eating a hamburger in the Goffe Street Park following a Toni Harp mayoral campaign-sponsored event that afternoon when he was approached by the 35-year-old. Police say DelaPaz told the elder white male that he shouldn’t be “in his park where young black kids are playing”. When the man refused an order from DelaPaz to pick up a football, DelaPaz punched the man multiple times in the face, knocking him to the ground. Police say several witnesses supported the victim’s account of the unprovoked attack.
And this case, similar to the first one we profiled in this post.
