KINGSTON, Pa. (AP) The young woman probably thought the 71-year-old veteran, whose friend was in a wheelchair, would make an easy target. She was wrong.
Harry Kopenis chased and tackled the 22-year-old woman he says robbed him at an ATM in northeastern Pennsylvania. Then, with help from his friend in a wheelchair, he held her until police arrived.
"Maybe she thought I was easy prey. She didn't think I was going to get her. Well, senior citizens aren't easy prey," Kopenis said.
Police charged Erin Vanmatre, of Kingston, with robbery, harassment and other offenses.
