“‘I think the moral of the story is you just never know who’s packing heat,’ said (Anthony) Conte. ‘Old man Sal was packing so you gotta watch out. And it’s a shame it went down. I hope those kids are OK.'” You can see those so-called kids — aged 20 and 21 — examining their gunshot wounds above (click here for the video). They’d allegedly assaulted a 65-year-old man and his wife on a Philadelphia street Tuesday night, blissfully unaware that “old Sal” had a license to carry and a .45 . . .
It was just after 8:30 p.m. when the couple was walking home from work. They told police two men passed them. One of those men said to the husband, “What are you looking at?” then punched him, threw him to the ground and continued assaulting him.
Then they turned their attention to the wife, in her 50s, punching and knocking her down as well.
Sal was also smart enough to let his lawyer talk to the media.
The couple’s attorney said they tried to get away, but the two men kept coming after them.
“They attack him. They attacked his wife. He begged to stop. Him and his wife pulled away. They kept on coming,” said Kenneth Young. “He explained he has a firearm. They said they don’t care. They punched him in the face.”
The couple was also treated for injuries. Police and the attorney said the husband suffered serious wounds to his eye and face.
“This was a matter of life or death. If he didn’t do what he did, and he didn’t have the training to do it. I think we would be at a funeral right now. It’s that bad,” Young said.
The two yoots were hospitalized and, according to reports, will recover. The local DA will decide who will be charged and with what. Our money’s on Old Sal to skate. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: don’t mess with an old guy.
