“Give me the keys, bitch.”
That’s what two tattooed aboriginal men said to a woman as they tried to force their way into her car. It was 5 p.m. on August 28 in Canora, Alberta, and she had just arrived home with groceries.
“They climbed right in my car,” said the mother, who was able to escape with her keys from the vehicle and alert her adult son and husband to the attack.
Her son, Johnathan Tews, pinned one of the attackers to the ground, who was then restrained by his father. Johnathan then grabbed a baseball bat and chased after the second suspect. Three blocks later the target was apprehended, and allegedly handled in a rough manner by the son.
Johnathan’s reaction earned him an aggravated assault charge and a date with a judge on September 15.
Benjamin MacIntyre, 23, and Raymond Cardinal, 26, have been charged with robbery.
Johnathan’s father told the Edmonton Sun here that both suspects have an extensive criminal past.
The mother in this tale is disappointed with the way police have handled the situation, and is worried that the men may return for revenge.
