BOOM: Three Marines Jump In to Fight Off Thugs Trying to Rob an Old Lady

I hope these little thugs get what they deserve. 1000pts for the Marines.

LYNNWOOD, Wash. — Three U.S. Marine Corps recruiters said they heard repeated honking from inside their office on Tuesday around 5:00 p.m. — when they ran out to see what was going on.

“We thought there was road rage involved or a fight broke loose,” said Sgt. Riccardo Schebesta.

Schebesta and two other recruiters rushed outside and saw a woman yelling for help.

“She said, ‘Help me I’m being robbed.’ I stopped paying attention to her. She’s not the problem,” said Staff Sgt. Ben Shoemaker.

He immediately saw one of the suspects, and ran to try and catch them.

“No — that kid was never going to outrun me,” Shoemaker added. “Marines run towards the sound of chaos.”

Moments earlier, Lynnwood Police said that the woman was confronted by two robbery suspects.

Officers said the woman in her 60’s was getting into her pick-up truck in the parking lot of the Alderwood Mall.
