Don’t Mess with 92 Year Old Women From Texas … Opal Phelps Kicks Would be Home Invader/Robber in the Face
DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS …
This might just be the feel good story of the week. 92 year old Opal Phelps is the hero of the week. Opal was awakened in her bedroom by a masked thief in her Jasper County, TX home Monday, but was not intimidated. Instead she was defiant. The home invader then asked for $20, she informed him she didn’t have any money and was unaware of what she did with her purse. The thief then instructed her to put on her shoes. Because her shoes are hard to get on, that’s when the feisty senior citizen took her other foot and kicked the masked man right in the face. GOOD FOR YOU OPAL!!!
The senior citizen did not give in to the thief’s demands. When he asked for $20, she informed him she didn’t have any money and was unaware of what she did with her purse.
He then instructed her to put on her shoes.
“He had a hold of my leg trying to put them shoes on, and they hard to get on, and I just took my other foot and kicked him right in the face,” Phelps said.
She had a Life Alert monitor on her nightstand and when the intruder grabbed it, she hit the button. The man took off, but he did get away with a gun she had near her bed.
She was defiant to the end.
One would think that was defiant enough by Opal Phelps, but it gets even better. Opal told the police, “I’m going to stay here. I was getting me another gun.” Phelps then says, ” … I’m going to use it next time I think.”
Police are still looking for the thief.
