Just another Day at Wal-Mart in Arkansas

Purse snatching victim fights back, husband shoots at mugger - CW Arkansas: "People who shop at the Wal-Mart on Cantrell road in Little Rock speak out over an attempted robbery there on Monday night. A Little Rock couple decided to give the robbers a run for their money. At 11:30 Monday night, 63 year-old John Antonetz and 57-year-old Lydia Antonetz found themselves held at gunpoint at the Wal-Mart on Cantrell.

'Mr. Antonetz and his wife were finishing up their shopping and loading their car when they were approached by a black male in a disguise,' said Officer Cassandra Davis�with the Little Rock Police Department.

Police say 24-year-old Jonathan Terry approached the couple wearing a wig and a cap saying this is a robbery. Officers say Sherry Battles and Tequila Rice manned the getaway vehicle.

Before the three got away, Mr. Antonetz pulled his gun and shot at his attackers several times, hitting Terry in the buttocks. That's when the three suspects took off."
