According to the Indianapolis Star, a local woman had a fortunate ending to a very bad walk home this week. After first being scared witless by a man heckling her on a bicycle, she was grabbed by a man with a small handgun as she left a convenience store.
“The man then grabbed her arm and said, “I have a gun and you’re going to walk down here with me,” according to the report.
The man then led her south on LaSalle Street from 10th Street, with a small handgun pointed at her back. That’s when the woman took out a knife from her pocket and started swinging it at the man as she yelled, according to the report. The man then fled.”
Knife-fu does not usually beat Gun-fu. But desperation, surprise, and having a tool can be enough to change a tactical situation. In most cases it is a gun being drawn that beats a knife, but not in this case. But in virtually every case, it is a predator discovering the hard way that the sheep has fangs and exits stage right. Or is sometimes made to exit permanently.
