Woman Fights Off Robber with Her Walker
MANCHESTER, N.H.-- A 50-year-old woman fought off a robber with her walker. Candace Neal had worked as a deputy sheriff and corrections officer.
A masked intruder armed with a knife entered the home and began running towards Neale and her friend. The robber knocked the friend down and went after Neal.
She used the walker to hit the robber and attempted to knock the knife out of his hand. About a year ago she became disabled and requires a walker for her back problems and a recent foot surgery.
The robber managed to get Neal's purse which contained her ID, $200 cash, and a month of Oxycodone, methadone, muscle relaxants, and anti-stress medication from her surgery.
Neal says she would have been helpless without her walker. She said she would be moving out because the neighborhood is declining.
