Don’t underestimate those 95 year old Marines:

“I was almost standing nose to nose with him. That was a shocker,” the veteran told the Journal Sentinel. Fred added that the robber threatened to kill him and his dog if he didn’t hand over his wallet.

“I wasn’t scared. I was so damn mad,” the veteran of the war in the Pacific told reporters. The 95-year-old was able to wrestle alleged burglar, Gary Wells, to the ground before the homeowner’s daughter ran downstairs to help fight the thief off.

Fred’s motivated 51-year-old daughter Mary then took off after Wells, chasing the burglar for six blocks before catching and holding him for police. “I was mad because of what he did to my dad,” Mary said. “We jumped over two fences and ran through 12 yards,” the Marine’s daughter added.

Mary eventually caught the crook after the 53-year-old’s leg got caught on a picket fence. “It was just reflexes. I guess it rubbed off from my father.”

  1. Gary Wells.
    The 53 year old perpetrator.

    I wonder if he had his right hand in his pants pocket as he threatened the veteran and the k-9? “I’ll kill you and your dog if you don’t hand over your wallet.”
    He, Gary, is probably a resident of Madison WI.
    A member of the happy group, Freedom from Religion possibly. Seems fitting.
