Ax Wielding Woman Stops Thief

Updated: Tuesday, November 5 2013, 09:39 AM CST

A robbery attempt at a Hemet, California home comes to a sudden end when the suspect realizes the homeowner is armed with a throwing ax.

Robyn Irvine says she keeps the ax by her side at all times.

"He froze at first. I shocked him with my voice and then he took off. There was no way I could’ve caught him but I could’ve thrown it,” said Irvine, adding that she could have paralyzed the suspect by striking him in the spine.

Irvine isn't just any woman armed with a weapon. She's a former competitive ax thrower.

She says this is not the first time someone has tried to rob her home and warns if someone tries it again, they're not walking out.
