A 20-year-old Tulane student had her sense of security in her own home shattered Thursday afternoon when two men forced their way in her front door, held her down on the floor at gunpoint and robbed her Broadway Street house.
Moments later, frustrated that her attackers might escape without her even getting a look at them, she ran outside, spotted them down the block, and chased them for a better look — and ended up getting the laptop they stole from her back in her gambit.
“I’m shocked,” the student said, looking back on her actions afterward. “I’m not that strong or courageous of a person. I simply did it because those guys, they should get caught. It’s just not right.”
