SCARED MONKEYS HERO OF THE WEEK GOES TO KAREN DOLLEY, HOME OWNERS GETS MEDIEVAL WITH HOME INVADER …
Why do I get the feeling that this would be robber would rather have been shot than be sliced and diced with a razor sharp ninja sword. 30 year old Jacob Wessel went into the wrong house to rob Thursday night on 10th Street and Emerson Avenue on Indianapolis’ Eastside. 43 year old Karen Dolley said that she awoke around midnight to the voice of a man in her house and began punching him about 10 times and cornering him in her bedroom. Then it got real. It turns out that Karen has had medieval combat training. Karen reached for her gun but opened the wrong drawer. Karen then reached for her backup weapon, a Japanese-styled sword called ninjato, which she keeps near her bed. Folks, this thing could fend off and cut the heads off Zombies let alone a home invader. This is a classic as she held the 5 ft. 10 inch Wessel at sword point until the police arrived.
When a man broke into Karen Dolley’s home on Thursday night, her training in medieval combat came in handy. So did her sword.
The 43-year-old woman said she awoke around midnight to the voice of a man in her house near 10th Street and Emerson Avenue on Indianapolis’ Eastside.
She leapt out of bed, turned on the lights and saw him standing in her living room, she said. Then her instincts kicked in.
Dolley, standing 5-foot-6, said she immediately attacked, punching him about 10 times and cornering him in her bedroom.
She reached for her gun in a nearby drawer, but she accidentally opened the wrong drawer during the chaos of the moment, so her gun wasn’t there.
She reached for her backup weapon, a Japanese-styled sword called ninjato, which she keeps near her bed. Her intruder crouched in the bedroom as she held him at sword-point until police arrived, she said.
Jacob Wessel of Greenwood was later arrested by the police after forcing his way through the house’s backdoor and was later charged with residential entry, a Level 6 felony. There was no mention as to whether he soiled himself.
