DAYTON -- A gun-toting 90-year-old man scared a robber out of his business.
A man came into R&J Laundromat on Monday afternoon and demanded money from the owner, George Hicks, 90. Hicks grabbed his gun and chased the robber out the door and then called 911.
Here is an excerpt of that call: 911 Dispatcher: "Did he take any money?" Victim: "No. No. When he shoved me, I jumped up and went for my gun and when I went for my gun I said I'll blow your (expletive) brains out and he was gone."
"I want to shake the man's hand," Tom Mauro said. Mauro owns the Third Base Drive Thru.
