Melinda WalkerFORT WAYNE, IN – A woman tired of being robbed fought off a trio of intruders using a Guitar Hero Game Controller.

Melinda Walker said that on Sunday, she was at home with her 5-year-old grandson when three young men walked into her home with their faces covered. They claimed to have a gun and demanded Walker give them cash and her television.

This would mark the third time someone had entered her house uninvited, and possibly the third time she would have possessions taken from her by a thief. Even though they said they had a gun, Walker said it looked like one of the men was holding the handle of a hammer.

“I looked them up and down. I didn’t see a gun,” said Walker. “The whole time one of the kids kept saying, ‘She doesn’t think we have a gun. She doesn’t think we have a gun. Take it out and clean it on her.'”

Sick of her home being targeted by robbers, and not wanting the three men near her grandson, Walker grabbed a nearby object off the ground and brandished it like a weapon.

“This (a Guitar Hero video game controller) was laying on the floor. And I just reached down and picked it up and I told them to get the hell out of my house! I just kept smacking one of them,” said Walker. “At the same time I pushed the one that wouldn’t shut up down the stairs…and then they went out.”

Walker said the three “weren’t all that big” and were anywhere from 15 to 21 years old. They fled the scene in a champagne colored, older style sedan. Walker feels her home is being targeted because the person responsible know her and is familiar with the home.

  • Figured I’d throw in a good one today before getting into the muck.

  • Go, Grandma! (y)

  • IntelligentVirtue

    Haha, she just single handily disproved the sentiment that video games are good for nothing, you go girrrl!!

  • BrittBrittRoss

    She should get a pit bull…

  • CT

    At what point don’t you install a guillotine/pendulum over your front door after the first two attempts? That’s how I’d start out. Just saying.

  • Vesper B

    Hell to the yes, grandma!! I want to send a machete her way. 😀

  • She’s lucky she didn’t hit them, she could face federal charges ;P

  • TruTruTrue

    Grandma is awesome! But I think she needs to contact Macaulay Culkin, so he can come over and teach her grandson how to booby trap the house.

  • glitterpuss

    Good for her dude….lowlives who pick older/disabled people to rob and maim really piss me the fuck off. They got a fraction of what they deserve.

  • Jessica Stewart

    LOL too funny!

  • Cammy Newsome

    Forever dubbed “Guitar Hero Granny”

  • Buffettgirl

    Go Granny Gadget GO!!! She’s AWESOME! (And yes, CT, this time I’m yelling a little, but in a good way!) 😉

  • come_and_see

    House invaded 2 times already? I would start carrying a gun on me always.

  • Abroad

    Way to send those home space invaders packmaning.

  • newstarshipsmell

    I would convert the front porch to a trap door-covered spiked pit.

  • JohnQknowitall

    FINALLY!!! Someone who has a real reason for owning a Pit Bull….

    Poor or not, who the fuck stays where there have been 2, now 3, home invasions? Sorry, but you get one life. You can get another house.

  • JohnQknowitall

    I should have read your post before mine…. 10,000 up votes… finally someone with a legitimate reason to have a Pit Bull… maybe even one with rabies…

  • rpgmomma8404

    First time I would have gotten a few guns and two rottweilers.

  • Valerie

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Love it!

  • Chinchillazilla

    You can get another house if you can afford one. This is often contingent on selling the current one, and who’s gonna buy a house that constantly gets broken into?

  • Valerie

    I was yelling just a little too…in a very good way.

  • Aurora Hylton

    This woman is my hero! I love when ordinary people kick ass on wannabe neer-do-wells.

  • Aurora Hylton

    It’s not necessarily that easy. My husband and I tried selling our house a few years ago. In the end we decided to just stay where we were. In this economy, a lot of people can’t afford to buy.

  • Anne Trent Phd

    But I thought you guys (not you personally) are always saying “it’s not the dog it’s the owner!” despite the fact they are bred to fight…

  • Amber Angeldust

    Well, now I know my old Guitar Hero controller will come in handy if someone breaks into my apartment. Why didn’t this woman get a security system or better locks?

  • CT


  • darsa

    Lock the freaking door.

  • JohnQknowitall

    After grandma’s funeral the daughter will have to sell the house alone… at least if the grandmother sells or walks away from the house she will be alive along with her grandchildren and not raped and not tortured and not…

    Although nothing is much safer than a coffin… I get your point.

  • BrittBrittRoss

    It was a nod to the running joke around here…

  • Buffettgirl

    I do that… 😉

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    In lieu of a pitbull, maybe she should sell George Zimmerman her house. I hear he’s looking to relocate anyway.

  • LeaveMeBe

    With poisonous darts that shoot out of the wall.

  • Marlon Sanchez

    you go granny !!

  • Emily Clocke

    I love stories like these. I hope she doesn’t get robbed again, but I suspect she’ll protect herself just fine if some asshole does try it again.
