    On September 7 around 12:30 p.m., a woman was accosted by an armed robber as she made her way to her vehicle outside a Houston check-cashing business. According to police, the suspect had followed and pointed his gun at the victim, demanding that she hand over her keys. He proceeded to choke her.

    That's when 73-year-old Simon Mancilla Sr., a grandfather of 11, rolled up in his truck and said, "Hey man ... don't make a problem."

    The suspect turned his attention to Mancilla. The bandit yanked the grandfather out of his truck and climbed inside. While the suspect prepared his getaway, Mancilla threw wide the door and began pulling him out of the vehicle.

    The suspect repeatedly struck Mancilla in the head with his pistol. Despite his injuries and suffering a wound that would ultimately require several stitches to close, the grandfather leaned into the struggle, delivering a flurry of punches.

    Although he would lose the fight and his truck with it, Mancilla won the battle. The woman was safe.

    "I don't have any choice," said Mancilla, concerning his sense of obligation to intervene.

    The chances of being robbed and attacked in Houston have been on the rise.

    Only 14% of carjackings since 2019 reportedly have resulted in an arrest.

    Last year, there were 1,216 carjackings, up 10% from 2020 and up 20% from 2019.

    The likelihood of becoming a victim of either a property crime or a violent crime is 1 in 23 and 1 in 78 respectively.

    And this is why I carry. Props to Grandpa, but I wish he'd been able to ventilate the shit bag and keep his truck.
