From Staff Reports Attacker had knifed and kicked elderly man when she stepped in By The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. —A young woman stopped a youth's attempt to steal a car after he attacked its elderly owner, getting a black eye in the process but leading to the teen-ager's arrest. "I've always wanted people to know that I could take care of myself," said Hollie McDaniel, 18, Grandview. Thanks to her, Arthur Corbin, 91, still has his Ford Escort, and police have a 16-year-old in custody. Corbin, also of Grandview, had gone to a store last Friday morning to shop for shoes. As he was leaving, a knife-wielding boy confronted him as he stepped off the curb toward his car. "Give me your keys," he told Corbin. "I have a knife." When he didn't comply, Corbin was knocked to the ground. The youth slashed Corbin's right hand with a 6-inch steak knife, which Corbin kicked away. "I don't know how I did that," said Corbin, who has arthritis and sometimes uses a walker. ' But the teen kicked Corbin in the stomach and took his keys. That's when McDaniel came in. She had taken her 8-year-old brother shopping when she got outside and heard a moan. By this time, the youth was trying to start Corbin's car. Leaving her brother in the car, she jumped behind Corbin's car, figuring the youth wouldn't back up and run over her. When the youth couldn't get the car out of park, he ran back to her, cursed her and hit her in the eye. The blow knocked her down. She could see the teen walking toward her car. The rest is a blur, she said, but her brother filled her in. "I guess I just popped up and went to the car and started kicking and hitting this guy," she said. "At the very least I was a fairer fight for the kid than the old man." Finally, the attacker ran away. A pizza delivery man drove after the youth, and a police officer at a bank drive-through saw the chase and followed. He cut the youth off in a back yard. An ambulance took Corbin to a hospital where he was treated for cuts on his hand and bruises on his stomach, leg, elbow and shoulder. He could barely walk Saturday but was doing better this week, he said. McDaniel still sports a black eye. "She really put her life on the line for this older man," said Kansas City police Detective Leslie Cornell. HURRY! i SALE ENDS SOON!
