Hello. We interrupt your typical Tuesday to bring you some kick arse news of kick arsery.
Doris Rucker Wasden is 99 years old and a resident of Salt Lake City, Utah. Like most 99-year-olds she is fantastically sassy. So much so that when an armed gunman tried to hold the grandma hostage on the weekend she wasn’t having a bar of it.
Let’s set the scene.
Glorious Doris heard some commotion in the house she shares with her granddaughter and her granddaughter’s fiancé, so got out of bed to check what was up. She soon returned because bed is love, bed is life, she’s been doing this whole ‘living’ thing for an entire century and is understandably exhausted etc.
It was then that a very strange man indeed (who now faces criminal charges) named Freddy Alexander Velasquez entered her bedroom with a gun, interrupting Doris’ quality time with her dog.
He then proceeded to hold her hostage for two hours. Rude.
Watch Doris recount the experience below. Post continues.
“I just got back in bed and he come in again and then he started to talk to me. And I said ‘I can’t hear you, I can’t hear you,’” Doris told Fox 13. “And then he realised I was a very old woman, so he was pretty nice to me after that.”
