DETROIT (WJBK) -- On a well kept Detroit block, mowing the lawn on a Tuesday afternoon is nothing out of the ordinary and, sadly, either is what happened next.
Former police chief Stanley Knox was robbed by two black teens
"They stopped and asked if that was Curtis down there. I said, 'Yes.' And then they started walking back towards me. Then they [sped] up and with a gun in his hand," said Stanley Knox.
The two young men were getting ready to rob a former Detroit police chief.
"I was never afraid. I don't know what I was thinking about," he told us.
Did he feel that there was a chance they might shoot him?
"I thought about it at one point, yes."
He wasn't armed, so Knox tried to physically fight the bad guys off and in the process fell back over his lawnmower.
"They pointed the weapon at me and just gently took it off," he said.
