This guy went midieval on a home intruder....


https://www.westernjournal.com/punk...kbzrP6kS_ErCUs4eUw1jGva99QrgHIWKZbQqNjcrqdduQ


A punk stepped into a world of hurt when he broke into the apartment of a weapon collector, an encounter that left the criminal in the hospital.
Ben Ball was playing video games and watching television in his Kalamazoo, Michigan, apartment the night of Nov. 6 when a man began pounding on the door.
Ball said he had reason to believe the individual was armed, possibly with a gun. The man trying to force his way into the apartment once dated a former roommate of Ball’s.
Eventually, the pounding gave way to kicks, and the man breached the door.
Unfortunately for him, he was entering a world of pain.

Ball immediately jumped into action.
The 36-year-old weapon collector and battle reenactor grabbed a nearby weapon — a replica Viking-style ax — and went to work on the intruder.
“Door opens, grab the ax,” Ball said as he was walking a local WOOD-TV reporter through the attack.
“Step, step, hit,” he said.

The medieval weapon connected, slashing the suspect across the torso. The man then began grappling with Ball, destroying the apartment.
“There was a bloody mess everywhere,” Ball said.
Eventually, the intruder gave up and fled. A police K9 unit was able to follow the trail of blood and apprehend the suspect.
Alex Lavell Rawls, 33, was taken to a hospital before eventually being booked into the Kalamazoo County Jail.

well.......another lesson in life.......they don't always retreat at the mere sight of a weapon......and on rare occasion don't always flee immediately after the weapon connects.......this applies to firearms as well........

if this idiot would not turn tail and run from a battle axe.....he would not flee from a gun either.....and you keep shooting until the threat stops........

Good news story. Funny the suspect name is Axel and he was fended off with an axe.



That's funny, didnt even notice that.

Deputy, 100% rights. Stop fighting when the fight is over.

Must not be a very good reenactor.
Connected in the gut with a viking battle ax and he still had to fight him off and was able to flee the scene?
Either he needs to sharpen his blades or he needs more upper body strength.
I guarantee if I connect with a ax or my claymore you would not be able to flee
