Knife-Wielding 90-Year-Old Sends Intruder Packing
Wed Jan 14,10:21 AM ET
WELLINGTON (Reuters) - A 90-year old New Zealand man grabbed a carving knife from his kitchen and chased away a masked intruder who had threatened his wife with a butter knife.
The intruder waved the flimsy weapon at David Saulbrey's wife when she tried to ring the police to report Tuesday's break-in at their home in Lower Hutt, near Wellington, the Dominion-Post newspaper reported.
Saulbrey, who failed to hear the hapless intruder's demand for money because he was not wearing his hearing aid, then beat the burglar in a search for a more threatening weapon.
"Once I got the carving knife I said: 'Now you bastard, you're for it.' With that he threw his knife at me and took off out the door," Saulbrey told the newspaper.
"I was that bloody wild I would have stuck (the knife) in his Adam's apple," he said.
New Zealand police said they did not recommend confronting an armed intruder but praised Saulbrey's bravery.
"He's a tough old bugger. You wouldn't think he was 90, that's for sure," Detective Scott Cooper was quoted as saying.

I had an incident once around my old house....some questionable people in a car riding around causing some trouble... My friend, neighbor, went out with a pastry knife ( I had my .44 mag)...After the non incident I asked him " what were you going to do with that?".... he wasn't sure. I guess frost them.
