Woman Fends Off Alleged Robber With Hair Straightener
UNIONTOWN (KDKA) — A man walked into a Fayette County house unannounced and uninvited early Thursday morning.
It wasn’t the home of a total stranger since the suspect and the woman who lived there once had a relationship and a child.
However, the intruder ended up getting more than he bargained for.
Kameshia Ford hit 45-year-old David Sims over the head with a hair straighter after he walked into the home at 3 a.m. and confronted her and her boyfriend, armed with a kitchen knife.
He reportedly wanted to rob them.
Sims faces multiple charges and is jailed on $50,000 bond.
Lt. Thomas Kolencik, of Uniontown City Police, says Ford will not be charged because she was defending herself and her family.
Ford told KDKA-TV’s Ralph Iannotti, “My first instinct was to protect my family and loved ones, and I’d do it again if I had to.”
