Stun-gun robbery victim fights back

BRICK TOWNSHIP - Two men wearing ski masks attempted to steal Beverly Blanchard's purse with a stun gun.

The high-voltage electrical charge was meant to wipe her out during a robbery as she entered her apartment on Brandywine Court late Monday night in Brick, but the 44-year-old woman didn't surrender.

A relative says the woman fought back and tackled the men. Police say the black ski masks and the gloves that the woman says the attackers were wearing, as well as her purse were found.

Blanchard got her purse back. She says it was missing some cash, but her family believes the armed robbers got much more than they bargained for.
