When a 92-year-old South Carolina woman noticed that two gunmen had recently broken into her home, she made her leave in an unexpected way. She just started talking to them. Agnes Ebert, 92, told WPDE she was watching a Hallmark film when her security system alerted her that her back door was open. Then two masked men with guns entered her house. At first she thought it was a joke. “That’s what I said to the kids, ‘Is that a joke? Who are you? And is that a joke? I’ve got a lot of boys and boys like to play jokes, but they’ve never played one like that,'” she said. “But they both had guns.” Ebert said the men walked out of their home and back into the neighborhood. Police are still looking for three suspects they believe were involved in the attempted burglary. The incident startled the neighbors. Tim Dearmey told WPDE that the area had never seen an incident like this. “A lot of times you leave the house and you’re only gone for an hour, so you just leave the doors open,” he said. Ebert said the situation surprised her but remained true to herself in her response. “You have to be like that. That comes with age, I think,” she said. “I have eight children and almost 30 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren, and you just never know what to expect.”
