PORTLAND, OR – A man armed with a shotgun got a bit more than he bargained for after he broke into an apartment during an attempt to rob the people inside.
After 38-year-old Joshua McCoy successfully broke down the front door of the residence, while wielding a pistol-grip shotgun , he demanded money from the residents.
But a quick thinking 20-year-old foiled McCoy’s robbery attempt after he grabbed the shotgun from McCoy and then pushed his ass down a flight of stairs. McCoy ended up hitting his head on the way down and was knocked unconscious.
The 20-year-old and his mother’s boyfriend called police and stood watch over McCoy until law enforcement arrived and took McCoy into custody. After a quick trip to the hospital, McCoy was taken to jail and charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree robbery and first-degree burglary.
