If you’re a violent creep thinking about kidnapping a grandchild from grandma and grandpa’s house, you better forget about. One creep who learned not to mess with grandparents the hard way was Benjamin Dillion, 37, of Indiana who thought he was going to kidnap a 6-year-old little girl from her grandparent’s home.
On the evening of June 10th, Dillion busted down the door of grandmother Patty Roth’s apartment in a rage demanding that both she and her husband surrender his daughter.
It turns out that Dillion’s daughter was not in the home, but the Roths’ 6-year-old granddaughter was. The thing is that she was in no way related to Dillion. Roth’s husband immediately switched into Granddaddy bear mode and began to beat the living snot out of Dillion, driving the creep out of their apartment.
After Grandpa Roth beat Dillion out of their home, the grandparents then barricaded the apartment door and waited for the police to arrive. Once law enforcement arrived on the scene, Dillion was still pretty riled up and even tried to take on the officers (which never ends well). But he only got a chest full of volts for his efforts as the police were forced to taser the suspect before finally being able to subdue him.
The Roths believed that Dillion was most-likely hopped up on drugs — which makes the grandfather’s act of heroism even more impressive as he was able to fight back a meth’d out crazy man almost half his age!
They also said they had no clue as to why Dillion picked their apartment, and if he came back, he might be as fortunate next time.
This just goes to show you why you can never judge a book by its cover, especially when those books are loving grandparents who would move heaven and earth to protect their precious grandchild! We applaud both Mr. and Mrs. Roth for being the loving heroes their granddaughter needed. God knows what would have happened to that little girl had Dillion taken her.
You two have definitely earned yourselves a pair of “World’s Toughest Grandparent” mugs for Christmas!
