After 50 years, he’s decided he will now lock his front door.
The 92 year old New Rochelle man who apparently foiled a home invasion last week at 3 Cadillac Drive in the North End, is still making headlines.
“You keep your left hand out and counterpunch,” Tony Vanacore told CBS2.
“God gave me the strength to go down those stairs and punch this guy”, Vanacore told Talk of the Sound, when he found his caregiver struggling with the perp. The invader then ran for it.
Fortunately the invader’s gun was a toy.
There is a possibility that the shocked criminal may have been involved in recent home invasions in Pelham Manor and Mount Vernon. In those instances the victims were considered easy prey.
Until this time.
