Another case of poor victim selection skills.
Mugger targets female UFC fighter, ends up in the hospital

By Elizabeth Llorente
When a would-be thief saw 26-year-old Polyana Viana waiting for a taxi on Saturday outside her Rio de Janeiro apartment, he apparently concluded she was easy prey.

He asked her what time it was, she reportedly said, before trying to bully her into giving him her cellphone. He also told her he had a gun.

She quickly sized up the situation – it’s second nature for the UFC straw-weight, who has won 10 of her 12 professional fights.

“He was really close to me. So I thought, ‘If it’s a gun, he won’t have time to draw it,’” she told MMAJunkie.com in an interview. “So I stood up. I threw two punches and a kick. He fell, then I caught him in a rear-naked choke. Then I sat him down in the same place we were before and said, ‘Now we’ll wait for the police.’”

Wrong apartment.
Suspected burglar shot and killed at southside apartment complex

A suspected burglar was shot and killed by a resident at a southside apartment complex this evening.

The shooting occurred around 8:30 p.m. at the Hampton Port Apartments. These apartments are located on the 6100 block of Wooldridge Road near Cimarron Boulevard.

Police say their preliminary investigation shows a 41-year-old suspect tried breaking into an upstairs apartment. The 68-year-old man living in the apartment confronted the alleged intruder and then shot and killed him. Police are calling it self-defense.

“The 68-year-old resident feared for his safety, and he fired striking the suspect,” said CCPD Officer Travis Pace.

Drug problem, doing his best to stay sober? Shouldn’t be an issue for him now.
DA decides not to file charges against El Cajon homeowner who shot break-in suspect

By: Zac Self
EL CAJON, Calif. (KGTV) — The District Attorney has decided against filing charges against a man who reportedly shot and killed a suspect trying to break into his work truck in El Cajon.

The shooting happened on the 1100 block of Mona Place in March of 2018.

Authorities say Michael Poe woke up in the early-morning hours of March 11 to the sound of glass shattering. When he went outside, he found the suspect, Joseph Mercurio, breaking into his work truck.

Poe told police there was a confrontation before he shot Mercurion. Mercurion’s mother told 10News her son had a drug problem, but was doing his best to stay sober.

    What a cutie! She really put the hurt on him, looks like might be missing some teeth.

    “….was doing his best to stay sober.”
    And now, he’ll succeed. Just like Teddy Kennedy.

  3. Deplorable B Woodman says:

    BTW, pls define this “trifecta”?

    • AW1Ed says:

      A parimutuel racetrack (horse, dog, hell camel for all I know) term for betting on first, second, and third place.

      In TAH FGS, a trifecta is three stories that include the “stars” of the posted articles achieving room temperature.

      Today we had a two / one split, so no trifecta.

      Thanks for asking- if you had a question about it I’m sure there are a dozen other Delta Whiskies out the with the same. I was a Navy instructor, and jokes aside, the only dumb question is the one unasked.

      Maybe this will shed some light?

    Polyana is no pollyanna.

  5. JimmyB says:

    My God, could you imagine if he tried that with Amanda Numes? Then it would have been a trifecta.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Yeah, Chiappa does things their own way.

    • IDC SARC says:

      “IDC SARC showing up in 5,4,3,…”

      Once again Col. Colt’s truism is proven: A firearm makes all men (or women) equal regardless of age, size or infirmity. We might also add, don’t threaten to pull a gun on a woman who can whip your ass before you can reach to draw your pistola.

    “Mercurion’s mother told 10News her son had a drug problem, but was doing his best to stay sober.”

    I guess his best just wasn’t good enough. Moot point now.
