    Hmmm, that's two. I think this was over at packing.org, too. as the victims disarmed their attackers -

    Savannah, Georgia

    From the July 20, 2005 Savannah Morning News:
    The Chatham County Grand Jury on Wednesday indicted three men in two, unrelated cases have something in common. In both, the victims took away the accused robbers' guns and turned them on their assailants.

    In the first case, grand jurors indicted two cousins on charges they sexually assaulted and robbed a woman at gunpoint at the Tatemville Community Park in April.

    Eric Mikell and Morris Easterling are charged with two counts of armed robbery, aggravated sodomy and aggravated assault. Easterling is also charged with rape.

    ...

    During the attack, the woman wrestled away Easterling's gun and managed to shoot Mikell in the neck. The cousins ran away after she shot at them. Mikell was not seriously injured.

    In the unrelated case, the grand jurors indicted a Benedictine Military School student on charges he held-up a Wilmington Island McDonald's the night of his school's prom.

    Cole McEachern, a sophomore at the time of the robbery, is charged with three counts of aggravated assault, armed robbery, kidnapping, kidnapping with bodily injury, aggravated battery, burglary and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

    Kerry Bennett, manager at the McDonalds on Johnny Mercer Boulevard, was shot in the left forearm while he was trying to wrestle away McEachern's gun. Bennett got it and shot the teenager in the groin, according to police reports.

    I must say the accuracy is not bad considering the unfamiliar guns.
