Michigan: Crime Fighter Mom Fights Crime
The woman who organizes Michigan's Amber Alert program had to protect her own family this week. She's a nationally recognized crime fighting mom and proved why when she says she was attacked in her own home.
The Tuesday morning wake-up call for Robin Trumbull was her for sale SUV on fire.
"I heard a sound," says Robin. "I stepped out on the deck, looked over and saw my Tahoe on fire."
Then Robin says a masked man dressed in black hit her in the chest, knocking her back in her house.
"He shut the door, grabbed my husband's ax handle which he uses for a walking stick and (the intruder) hits me again across the arm and he hits me again across the arm and I'm stepping back....I'm thinking all along how can I get out. Where's my hand gun?"

Robin says when she kicked the intruder, she then scrambled to the kitchen, shut the door and grabbed her gun.
"I took it out of my holster, took a step back, took aim...and fired. I aimed where I thought he would be."
Robin shot and missed the attacker who then disappeared.
"He could have run through the woods. It's still dark out."
Robin says she doesn't know who may have done this to her. But she says she's ready if the intruder dares to come back.
Calhoun County Sheriffs have no leads on this case at this point.
