NBC4: Manassas Man Says He Fought Off Intruder With Guitar


Recommended Posts


A would-be home invasion got rocked trying to break into a northern Virginia home.

A Manassas man told police that it was not a six-shooter' date=' but a six-string he used to play defense against a man he said was trying to break in.

Authorities said around 1:05 a.m. on October 1, 32-year-old John Marc Mayhew tried to force his way into the Manassas home. The resident was able to bar the door, but Mayhew then ran around to the rear of the house to enter the back door, according to the police report.

The resident told police he grabbed his guitar to defend the house. As Mayhew attempted to force his way through the rear entrance, the resident said he struck him over the head with his musical instrument. According to the resident, the guitar knocked the alleged intruder down the back steps to the ground, where he passed out.[/quote']

To the tune of Juke Box Hero by Foreigner:

Running to the back door

Tryin’ to get inside

Went to push it open,

To get it open wide.

Heard the roar of a man,

Can you picture the scene?

Put his head in the hall,

Then like a distant scream,

He heard one guitar.

Just blew him away

Saw stars in his eyes

and he started to sway.

Got beat up by a six string at a house’s back door.

Didn't know how it happened

but he knew for sure

That one guitar

cracked over his head.

Didn't take long to understand.

Just one guitar

Hit with a single blow

Was a one-way ticket

To jail dontcha know.

Once he started stealin', didn't know when to stop

Had to keep on stealin'

Now he’s talkin’ to the cops.

He’s a Criminal Loser, got stars in his eyes

He's a Criminal Loser.

It took one guitar - stars in his eyes

Criminal Loser, he'll go to jail tonight.
