Jesus Christ saves 15 women from armed robbery

A masked gunman who attempted to rob a group of women inside a Lake City home Friday night may have got more than he bargained for.

Lake City police say Derek Lee, 24, entered a house on Lakeview Avenue where the homeowner had 14 women over for a jewelry party. Police say Lee was wearing a dark ski cap on his head along with a bandana across his face. He allegedly showed a gun and ordered the women to hand over their money and phones.

One woman who thought it was a party gag pushed his hand aside while laughing saying, "It's only a water gun." Police say Lee (pictured, right) held the gun to that woman's head and said, "I'm not joking, I'm going to shoot someone, give me your money."

Jacquie Hagler, who owns the house, says she then put her faith into action.

"When I realized what was going on, I stood up and said, 'In the name of Jesus, get out of my house now.' And he said, 'I'm going to shoot someone.' And I said it again, real boldly," Hagler said.

"Everybody started chanting, 'Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,' and he did a quick scan of the room, and ran out the door as fast as he could go."

Police say based off of the description given by the victims, investigators were able to identify Lee and place him in a photo lineup.  Several of the ladies at the jewelry party pointed out Lee, who was arrested at his home at 11:17 p.m. Friday.

Wow!  Way to go, Jesus!

Anytime you look moe crazy than the gun wielder, they want out. Maybe God gave the women the strength to look and acts bonkers?
