Hero Or Villain : Pensioner Arrested After Burglar Dies From Stabbing Incident.

A pensioner has been arrested after fatally wounding an intruder during a suspected burglary at his home, police said.

Two men entered the property in Further Green Road in Hither Green, south-east London, early on Wednesday morning.

One suspect, armed with a screwdriver, forced the 78-year-old home-owner into his kitchen when he discovered them, while his accomplice went upstairs, Scotland Yard said.

Officers were called to reports of a burglary in progress at around 12.45am and the London Ambulance Service took the wounded man to a central London hospital, where he died at 3.37am.

The force was unable to confirm whether the suspect had been stabbed with the screwdriver.

The pensioner suffered bruising to his arms and was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm, police said.

He remains in custody at a south London police station.

The dead suspect’s next of kin have been informed and a formal identification is due to take place. A post-mortem examination will be carried out in due course.

The Homicide and Major Crime Command is investigating.

Although this story is not Taxi related, it reminds me of an incident that took place about 15 years ago. An older Cabby George, who in his younger days was a Generdier Gaurd, was in Camden News waiting to pick up a radio job. 
He had vacated his Tax to ring the door bell when he heard a shout "Stop him". 
As he turned, he saw a man running towards him, being chased by two uniformed police officers. 
As the man passed, George stuck his leg out and the young man went flying. 

To cut a long story short, the man was seriously injured in the fall and George was arrested. Lucky for George though he had legal cover and was soon released on bail. 
The police later dropped all charges, but it just goes to show how easy it is to wind up on the wrong side of the law. Had the case gone to court and George convicted, he would have lost his licence, all for helping the police catch suspect mugger.

The 78 year old pensioner from South London fought back, after being attacked in his own home and has now found himself in a police cell. In my eyes the man is the hero, not the villain.
