Couple Fight Home-Invasion Robber In Koreatown

KOREATOWN (CBS) — A home-invasion robbery was foiled early Monday morning when two homeowners fought back.

A man and woman living in the 700 block of South Kingsley Drive fought a would-be robber at 2:30 a.m., Sergeant F. Kuljis of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Olympic Station said.

The man reportedly used a golf club to attack the intruder, who was bleeding profusely from the back of his head as he was placed in the patrol car. He was later hospitalized with severe head wounds.

The residents appeared to only have minor injuries.
