After being burglarized twice over the winter, 29-year-old Tiffany Friday wasn’t about to let anyone get away with stealing her things again.
Police said Lonnie Lane was burglarizing 1630 Waverly Ave. when the woman living in the home discovered him. The police report stated that 29-year-old Tiffany Friday chased Lane, 30, tackled him and held him down until police arrived.
“I was mad. I mean, they had took, taken everything from us. I mean, they took my daughter’s games, my son’s games, they took TVs, computers,” said Friday.
Friday said she chased the men from her home, through her backyard and into the woods. She then ran back home, got into her friends’ car, and told them how to get to the other side of the woods.
When they arrived, Friday said, Lane was just coming out of the woods. When he recognized her, Friday said, he threw a brick at the car.
“I got hit with sticks, stems, anything they could pick up, they was just throwing at me to keep me off of ‘em. But, I kept runnin’, I was not gonna stop,” said Friday.
Friday said she and her friends piled out of the car and grabbed Lane.
“I grabbed him by the back of his shirt and I hit him in the woods. And as I went to go for the other one, he grabbed the rest of the stuff that the guy dropped and he got away. I said, ‘OK, you can get away, but this one right here, he’s not goin’ nowhere,’” said Friday.
I would say dude should probably consider a career change but no one could've seen that ass whuppin comin...smh...A billion kudos to the chick (a sista by the way) who got tired of being victimized and bossed up on her victimizer... The world would be a better place if we all had the guts to do that.
