A would-be robber got more than he bargained for when he tried to rob an elderly couple in North Carolina.

Bonnie says the man at the door put a gun in her face and demanded her car keys. She refused, and called her husband.

That's when her husband Neil came running, and burst through the front door, and knocked the crook into the front yard.

Neil ended up with 18 stitches in his arm after wrestling with the suspect in the front yard.

Bonnie was able to give deputies a detailed description of the suspect, and he was caught a few hours later after he reportedly got into a wreck.

To hear Bonnie and Neil share more about how it all happened with WFMY reporter Liz Crawford, watch the video above.
