KY - 88 Year Old Fights Off Burglars With Cane
POSTED: 11:34 am EST December 3, 2004
WALTON, Ky. -- A pair of jail escapees were apparently lucky to escape from a cane-wielding, 88-year-old Kentucky woman who caught them breaking into her house Wednesday afternoon.
Police said Dortha Dance got into a scuffle with the two men and hit one in the nose with her cane. When she tried to get away from them, the other man caught her in the yard in Walton. But Dance hit him with her cane, too, Cincinnati television station WLWT reported.
At that point, the two men fled, police said.
They ran a short distance to a Waffle House, where they stole a car, police said. The pair then led police on a chase on Interstate 75 through northern Kentucky and Cincinnati to Mosteller Road and I-275 in Sharonville, where they were captured.
The pair had escaped a Tennessee jail on Sunday by crawling through ductwork, officials there said.The saints are the sinners who keep trying...
