87-Year-Old Defends Herself Against Cop Shooter

SPOKANE, Wash. - Mary Rock's face to face encounter with Charles Wallace is quite possibly the scariest moment of her long-lived life. The 87-year-old ran into him after she heard a loud bang come from the back room of her house.  

"It was very scary," said Mary Rock, whose car stolen by Wallace. "He said to me I want your car with a commanding voice and I said Oh no you don't get my car. He tried to hit me and knock me down. So I said oh this man means business so I grabbed my cane and started to hit him on the back of the shoulders."  

From there Wallace grabbed her fanny pack and keys and ran outside to steal her car.  

"And he wrecked the car. I have no more Honda. It was a beautiful car, and I just filled it up," said Rock.   Miraculously Mary only suffered a small bruise on her finger.  

"I'm not injured, but I'm spiritually injured. You know mentally I'm disturbed," said Rock.  

Now she is scared to sit inside the home she's lived in for ten years, but is at least happy to still be alive.  

"And they all said I was lucky because he had a gun on him," said Rock
