'Fractured' man defends bikini-clad robber with crutches
Melbourne, Dec 28 (ANI): Two women have been sent to a Florida jail after they allegedly attempted to mug a man, who fought them off using his crutches.
The women identified as 22-year-old Amber Lynn McKay and 21-year-old Veronica Anne Lane are now facing robbery charges.
William Joseph Knowles reportedly told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that he fought out with his crutches that "came in handy" during the tussle.
Knowles was using them because of a shin fracture he suffered in June.
He was apparently walking around 9:00am on Monday morning when two women approached him, one of whom was only wearing a bikini, according to a police affidavit.
The women started talking to Knowles, 59, about his injury. One of the women then tried to restrain him while the other reached into his pants pocket to snatch his wallet.
"I spun around and pinned one up against the wall, then the other girl tried to hit me and I swung at her with my crutch," Herald Sun quoted him as saying.
"I hit them a couple times with my crutches," he added.
He flagged down a police officer, who found the two women at a nearby hotel, according to the report.
Both were charged with robbery. Lane was ordered held on 7,500 dollar bond, while McKay was held without bond due to a probation violation. (ANI)
