Don’t mess with a grizzly momma bear!

KHOU:  A Baytown (Texas) mother fought back – and won – when an armed robber threatened her and her two young sons, according to police.

Dorothy Baker was just driving home from CVS with her sons, ages 5 and 2, when a man crept up from the third row of their minivan with a knife. He demanded money.

“So I asked him how much he needed and he said $200,” Baker said. “And I told him I didn’t have that kind of cash, I had about $20 in my account, and he said I better figure out a way to get it, or my kids were going to get hurt.”

Thinking fast and acting even faster, the mother of six ignored his request at one point to make a turn. She said he then leaped up to the front row and realized she had dialed 911 on her cell phone. Instinct took over and she was able to rip the knife out of his hand.

She said she then pushed him to the passenger seat and punched him in the face, all while they were still moving. “And I told him to get the hell out of my car,” she said. “And he said ‘fine.’ He got out and started running and the next thing I thought was if he gets away he can do this to somebody else.”

So she pursued him. “He kind of ‘zagged’ and I turned, intending to clip him in the side or something to get him to stop,” she said. “And I ended up running completely over him.”

Baytown police identified the man as 53-year-old Ismael Martinez. He was taken to Memorial Hermann via Life Flight, where he was listed in stable condition. Records reveal he served time in the TDC after a 1976 rape conviction.

Many people are praising the mom, who is now covered in scratches.
Baker does not see why. “I see myself as a mom trying to protect her kids,” she said. “That’s it.” She believes Martinez had spotted her family earlier in the day when they were at a Kroger across the street from the CVS.

She said he was smoking a cigarette and watching them, and that she recognized him the moment she saw him in her van.

Ha, the perp’s going to be embarrassed to tell this story in jail!

  1. OK, once again, never ever, never ever, mess with a mama grizzly and her kids. They will chew thru a mini van, just to get you again.
    Good for her.

  2. When it’s life or death, trust in the Lord, and fight like hell! Her guardian angel Michael helped kick his sorry ass.

  3. All my close friends who are mothers would have fought the same way to save their children from this sicko. Bravo to this young woman for her courage and quick thinking!

  4. Yeah, kick his butt!

  5. This made my weekend. 😀


  6. LOL..He will NEVER be able to live that down. He will wish she killed him from all the flack he will get in prison.
    When my daughter was 3 yrs old, we were living in an apartment in Dallas (alone).
    This idiot kid had climbed over my 6′ tall wood-planked patio fence, he decided to come on into the kitchen where I was fixing dinner.
    All I know is that the “Mama bear instincts” kicked in and I grabbed the knife I had been cutting up a Swiss steak with…waving it yelling “Get the F…K outta my house. He turned and lifted the latch on the patio gate and began to run.
    My adrenaline (sp?) was pumping so hard that I chased him down the block screaming at him to “Get the F…K…back here!


  7. OH! by the way, when you are in a parking lot at night getting out of your car to run into the store…take your key chain, and put a key between each finger joint. That IS an amazing tool to use is someone tries to grab you — go straight for the eyes!
    Then leaving the store, do the same thing.

  8. Seeing the look on that guy’s face, I’m thinking he’s thinking, “What the hell happened here?” Good for that lady!!

  9. I LOVE it! Raised 6 children, myself. Threatened to ram my truck into the truck of some bully who was harrassing my son who was much younger than him. He left pretty quick. (I had an old truck and he had a nice, new, shiney one–LOL!)
