FORT WORTH, Texas – Police said a suspected robber on the run took one look at a Fort Worth grandmother with a gun in her hand and gave himself right up.
Lake Worth police had been chasing two brothers into Fort Worth when they bailed out of their car near Interstate 30 and Hulen Street. One brother ran into a neighborhood and chose some bushes to hide behind.
He chose poorly. Cindy Irving came out of her house armed and ready with her 357 six shooter in hand.
“We were looking down towards that way and he was up underneath the bushes just hiding down on the ground,” Irving said. “We heard somebody say, ‘I give up, ma’am. I give up. The police are looking for me.’ And my son and I just stopped and we were startled.”
“’I’m gonna tell ya I’ve got a gun. It’s in your best interest not to move.’ Cause we didn’t know if he had a gun or not, you know. So he laid there and stuck his hands out and I’m callin 911,” Irving said.
