junkie gets outrun by a 90 year old

Recommended Posts

3639380.bin?size=620x400

 

The thief likely thought he’d spotted the perfect mark in 84-year-old Josefine Haas.

 

The West Kelowna senior was about to get into the back seat of her Toyota Corolla, which was parked in an underground lot in Vancouver’s Gastown.

 

She had an expensive Burberry purse in one hand. Her husband Otto, who is just two months shy of 90, was already sitting in the driver’s seat.

 

What the thief didn’t know is that Otto Haas ran the 100 metres in 12.5 seconds about 70 years ago as a university track star in Germany. And that he’s still pretty spry.

 

“I was just pulling on the door handle when someone jumped me from behind,” Josefine recalls. “He was pulling on my purse, but it has two strong handles, and I wouldn’t let go.”

 

Josefine says the man pushed her to the ground and twisted the purse free, snapping one of her fingers.

 

When he dashed for a stairwell, Otto leaped out of the car and chased him across the lot.

 

“I started screaming like I’d never screamed before,” Josefine says. “I chased after them, because I’m afraid he’s pushing Otto down, or he has a knife.”

 

Otto chased the thief up three flights of stairs.

 

The man passed the second-floor door, an open entrance to a mall, heading for the roof. But the top floor door was locked.

 

Otto had him cornered, standing about three metres from him.

 

Security guards had heard Josefine’s screams, and within a minute they ran into the stairwell.

 

“You move and I shoot,” one of them shouted at the thief.

 

About three minutes later, police arrived.

 

In an interview Thursday, Josefine said she’s doing just fine, except for the heavy painkillers she has to take for her broken finger and sore back.

 

“I knew Otto would protect me,” the proud wife says. “After 61 years of marriage, it’s just a reaction.”

 

“I’m surprised I could run that fast,” Otto says. The former sprinter says he’s still active, but hasn’t run flat out in decades. “The legs are not the same anymore; they get wobbly.”

 

The couple was visiting Josefine’s sister in Vancouver, and having a great time shopping in Gastown, when the last day of the trip ended with unpleasant fireworks.

 

They say they enjoy Vancouver and will return, even if the city is not as safe as it used to be.

 

Otto says if the thief had attacked during the stairwell standoff, he would have been ready, but the younger man seemed to accept that he was overmatched.

 

“He said ‘Here, take the purse,’” Otto says. “In a way, I felt sorry for him. It looked like he was under the influence of drugs.”

 

Otto adds that an unidentified woman who saw the struggle in the parking garage called police, and he would like to thank her.

 

Allen James Barkley, a 28-year-old Surrey man, was later charged with robbery in connection with the incident in the 200-block Granville Street, which happened on Sept. 22.

There has got to be a better come-up for a junkie than robbing grannies. If I snapped an old ladies finger I would feel so bad I would jump in front of the skytrain.

The DTES is the worst mix of Junkies and hipster douchebags on Earth- If powder drugs were poisoned the city would improve immensely overnight.

Yeah thats kind of low even for a junkie,

 

I can honestly say if I saw this dude rob and injury the old bag its a safe bet youd need a crowbar to pull me off from pummeling his dead beat ass.

 

And like dude two post up said, the old guy didnt outrun him he just got trapped and knew he was fucked.

in other words...

 

im at a point in my life, professionally and personally, that does not allow me to acquire clothes from the local value village.
