Granddad uses fishing rod to fend off robbers
When approached by three black males who brandished a handgun and announced a robbery, police say a 67-year-old angler at a North St. Louis, MO park defended himself with his fishing pole, whacking the three and sending them fleeing. Police later responded to a report of a “cutting” and were met by two teens who said they were attacked by a man with a fishing pole. One was booked into juvenile court and one was treated and booked. Riverfront Times.
