    88-Year-Old Woman Fights Off Burglars With Cane
    Jail Escapees Caught After Interstate Police Chase

    WALTON, Ky. -- A pair of jail escapees were apparently lucky to escape from a cane-wielding, 88-year-old Northern Kentucky woman who caught them breaking into her house Wednesday afternoon.

    Police say Dortha Dance got into a scuffle with the two men and hit one in the nose with her cane. When she tried to get away from them, the other man caught her in the yard. But Dance hit him with her cane, too.

    At that point, the two men fled, police said.

    They ran a short distance to a Waffle House, where they stole a car. The pair then led police on a chase on I-75 through Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati to Mosteller Road and I-275 in Sharonville, where they were captured.

    The pair had escaped a Tennessee jail on Sunday by crawling through ductwork, officials there said.

    Jedadyea Ray Tyndal and Dustin Cameron King were held overnight in the Hamilton County Justice Center pending extradition.

    King was being held in Tennessee on methamphetamine charges and Tyndal was being held in connection with burglaries of four churches, according to the sheriff there.

    The pair tried to break into a house in Richwood, Ky., before trying Dance's house, police said.

    They are charged with burglary, robbery, theft of the vehicle, and fleeing and evading police.

    That's a damn good woman. Hopefully, they gave her some kind of reward.
