He’s got some balls

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Three burglars got a bit more than they bargained for when they broke into a house in Salford this week.

They were disturbed by 41-year-old Wayne O’Mahoney who woke when he heard his front door being smashed. He ran downstairs to see three masked men in the house. One of them grabbed the keys to O’Mahoney’s Seat Leon & tried to drive off in it. The burglary victim is a serving Lance Corporal with 103 Regiment Royal Artillery. He chased them from the house. One of them got into his car & was armed with a knife at the soldier.

L/Cpl O’Mahoney said: “Two of them ran out of the house but the third one managed to get the car keys. As soon as he got in the car he was waving this knife at me and I thought ‘there’s only one way to stop him.’ So I punched clean through the driver’s window and I just kept hitting him until he got out.”

“The only thing is, I was a little bit naked because I sleep in my birthday suit.”

All three managed to get away.

It is thought the one in the car may have a shoulder injury as a result of the broken window.

Let’s hope it’s nothing trivial.
