Some crooks in Houston picked the wrong elderly couple to mess with.
On February 1st, two alleged robbers wearing clown masks approached a truck where Aretha Cardinal and her husband Joseph Nelson were sitting outside of their house in Texas City, Texas. The crooks wanted cash.
Nelson said one of the men stuck a machete into the truck and held it to his throat. Nelson told the guy, "Dude, you serious, you trying to rob me with a machete?" Nelson got control of the weapon.
Not to be outdone, Cardinal chased the other robber down hitting him with her granddaughter's scooter. She said, "Me and my husband held them down, you know, commence to beating them until the laws came. It was really scary, but it was like-- it was either us or them-- you know, and not us. You not gonna steal no money. We ain’t got no money.”
The suspects were arrested after the couples' adult daughter called the police.
