Wheelchair-Bound Woman Uses Gun to Scare Off Armed Burglars

A wheelchair-bound Cleveland woman is safe after drawing her gun on a pair of attempted robbers on Monday.

Melinda Vandal told Fox 8 she was in her laundry room when she noticed two men standing outside her window. "It was last Monday morning around 10:30," Vandal said. "I looked at the door and there was a man, right there, right outside looking like he was going for my door. The other one was by my garage cutting my screen in my garage window to get in."

She then called the police and retrieved her gun.

"It's my home," she told the news station. "I have to protect myself."

She then told the men she would defend herself and her home.

"I put the gun up to the window of the door and I yelled, get off my property,'" she said.

After seeing the gun, the man by the garage dropped his knife and the two men ran away. Vandal did not have to fire any shots at them. The police arrived a short time later but were unable to locate the two men. They are still investigating the matter.
