A 49-year old Jackson, Tennessee, woman fought off a would-be armed attacker in the Walgreen's parking lot at the corner of Memorial Boulevard and Thompson Lane.

According to police reports, the woman was sitting in her car at the drug store just after 3 o'clock Wednesday afternoon when a man raised his shirt, displayed a handgun and pointed it through her window.

The victim told officers the man said "you're not going to believe this, but I need a ride and if you scream, I'll shoot."
