A Man Breaks Up A Burglary Then Shoots One Of The Robbers In Self-Defense


Charles Dorsey saw two men robbing his long time neighbor.  Termaine Braxton and Anthony Roberts were the robbers and they got away with a few items before Mr. Dorsey intervened.

Mr. Dorsey stated, “Yeah, she’s like a sister to us. We’ve known her for 36 years or better.”

He was talking about his neighbor that is an elderly woman. She is also in a wheel chair.

Dorsey thought she was at home at the time and was mainly concerned for her safety. Crime is common in this neighborhood in the Southwest part of Little Rock
