From Chicago, Illinois;

Prosecutors said a Hanover Park man entered the family room through an unlocked screen door on Sunday, ran through the house and brandished a large butcher knife.

When he held the knife near an 85-year-old woman, the woman’s 60-year-old daughter grabbed her mother’s walker and began striking him, prompting him to flee, Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Jennifer Gates said in court Tuesday. The older woman had been using the walker since a recent hospitalization, Gates said.

The suspect, 44-year-old Gregorio Salgado, was taken into custody outside the home, where he resisted being handcuffed and was found with more than a gram of cocaine, Gates said.

Salgado was charged with home invasion, possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest, prosecutors said, and his bond was set on Tuesday at $750,000.

Gates said Salgado has previous felony convictions for aggravated battery and drug possession.

From Memphis, Tennessee;

A suspect was shot during an attempted carjacking in Orange Mound.

Memphis police responded to a shooting call in the 1400 block of Trezevant in near McDonalds.

Police said four men attempted to rob a victim, but the victim then shot one of the suspects.

All four suspects then fled the scene.

The suspect that was shot was transported to the hospital in non-critical condition.

MPD said the four suspects fled the scene in a black Infiniti.

Moments later, a black Infiniti arrived at in the 2900 block Lamar with a gunshot wound.

From Springfield, Missouri;

A man who was attempting to break into an apartment was shot overnight.

Lt. David Myer of the Springfield Police tells KOLR10 that a man attempted to climb in a window in the apartment complex in the 2800 block of south Nettleton shortly before 2:30 this morning…

That is when someone inside shot the suspect. The suspect has non life threatening injuries and it is believed that the suspect and homeowner knew each other.

    What?! No”D”s?! (DOT/DRT).
    That’s not the proper way to start the day.

    How dare that young lady strike the home invader with her mom’s walker depriving the perp a means of living to support his family and drug habit. It’s in chi town so I see the perp filing an assault lawsuit against the young lady./sarc

    According to one article I read on Mr. Salgado’s newest adventure in the criminal justice system, he’s facing 30 years for the home invasion. Knowing how Illinois handles criminals, if he’s tried and found guilty, I’m sure he’ll face a term of months behind bars, with more months on parole.

    Shillinois will reward the perp aka Greg-whore’e-o …wait, I mean the VICTIM of the viscous walker attack,with the entire balance of the 85 and 60 year old ASSASSINAS’ savings accounts and pensions to punish them for their digression when they “asked for it” and Greg-whore’e-o felt compelled to oblige them by explaining the danger of having a sharp and shiny, “large butcher knife” in such a blatantly dangerous location. Those sneaky, conniving, hag bag bitches.
    I mean it’s only right they pay……right????…..right….. RIGHT???!!!!!!!
