Katana-Wielding Homeowner – 1, Four Pistol-Packing Burglars – 0

 

Covered in blood: In the panic, the thieves only managed to steal the equivalent of £278 and fled in a Peugeot 206 car which was parked outside

 

 

” It is not technically a “Defensive Knife Use” since the hero of our story was swinging a Samurai katana, but we are going to count it. Unlike the “Middle-Aged Mormon Ninja Bishop” who simply needed to brandish a sword to thwart an assault, a 49-year old Argentinian homeowner went positively Medieval on the quartet of thugs who broke into his home recently. Things did not go well for the burglars.

  From the DailyMailUK:

“ Mr Costa, 49, and his wife Christina, 48, were asleep when the men, who were armed with two pistols, broke in at around 3.30am.

  Police commissioner Mariano Zarate said: ‘In a moment when the attackers were not paying attention, the house owner took a samurai sword and defended himself, injuring the attackers and making them run away…

 …Bleeding heavily, the driver lost control of the vehicle and hit a stationary car forcing all four to go to hospital for emergency treatment.

  Police initially arrested two men and one woman, but another man who hid was forced to come back to hospital the next day due to serious sword injuries.” “
