Pizza delivery Cape Coral FL
Cynthia Fitch says the robbers lured her into a trap, but she did not let them get away.
Fitch was called to deliver a pizza Tuesday night. She said she knew something was wrong when she pulled up and everything in the home was dark.
She says a man came up to her from behind and covered her mouth, telling her to be quiet.
“For the first couple of seconds, I wanted to cry and give him everything, ” said Fitch.
She did exactly what police say you shouldn’t do, she fought back.
“When he had the knife against my neck, I held onto the knife like this, because I figured he would have no control of the knife, other than hurting my hand, and I ripped the knife in his hand away from my neck.”
After the two men stole about $200 of her cash, she once again did the opposite of what police would have advised. Instead of watching the thieves leave quietly, Fitch chased after them.
“I jumped in my car, threw it in drive, so as soon as they take off, I’m following them and I’m calling the cops and they’re telling me to stop following them, just leave it alone.”
But she couldn’t. Fitch followed the men on a serpentine chase through the streets of Cape Coral until police caught up with them.
“I really, I heard the swing of the bat hitting the ball, that’s what made it click. I don’t know, it was crazy. And then I was just, starting to fight.”
Fitch says her 4-year-old son Brayden just started tee-ball. At the end of the week is the little league’s “Spring Fling, ” with games and rides.
She says she knew if she didn’t get back her wallet, Brayden wouldn’t have any money. For the mother, the thought of her little boy sitting on the sidelines, watching the other kids having fun, was an image far worse than anything her attackers could do.
