Middleborough teen armed with kitchen knives chases off, helps identify burglar

Christine McCarthy
A Middleborough teen who woke up to a break-in at her home Friday morning armed herself with two kitchen knives and chased away a burglar who police say is a career criminal.

Avery Cormier, 14, who was home from school on the first day of spring vacation, heard noises in her Spruce Street home after the man broke in through a first-floor window and began stealing items, apparently unaware anyone was home.

Avery ran downstairs, grabbed the steak knives and confronted the burglar, who dropped his stolen items, police and the teen’s mother, Dianne Tautkus, said.

“[She] started screaming at him: ‘Get the ‘F’ out of my house! You don’t belong here. This is my house,’” Tautkus told Boston 25 News. “He turned around and looked at her, and Avery said he looked so shocked and scared, like, ‘What?’ Here’s this kid there with two knives. And he kind of slinked away.”

Quick-thinking Avery watched the burglar flee and pulled out her cell phone, recording the pick-up truck back out of the driveway.

She then made an emotional 911 call, telling dispatchers what had happened and providing the information she had on the burglar.

Attempted carjacking victim in New Orleans shoots at two suspects during theft: report
The victim complied with suspects’ demands for his property before shooting

By Audrey Conklin | Fox News
The victim of an attempted carjacking in New Orleans shot at two suspects involved, according to local reports.

The two 17-year-old suspects approached the 48-year-old victim before 7 p.m. Thursday outside a design studio on Louisa Street. The teenage suspects allegedly held the victim at gunpoint while demanding he hand over his property, FOX 8 New Orleans reported, citing a law enforcement source.

The victim threw his car keys toward the suspects before ducking behind a nearby vehicle and shooting one of the suspects, as initially reported.

One suspect sustained a gunshot wound to the neck as a result, and the second suspect drove the first to Tulane Medical Center, where authorities recovered their two guns, one of which was determined to be stolen, FOX 8 reported.

Ballistic female with knives? I’d run, too. Hat tip to our Gun Bunny for the links.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. — Robert Heinlein

Good defense, using two knives and a maniac attitude. Just be glad he wasn’t armed and more determined to carrying out the burglary.
I’m thinking that when she grows up she’ll make a great Mama Bear.

Is it just me? Or do the perps seem to be getting younger and younger? Seventeen y.o.?
Yutes like that, when caught, need to have their nuts cut off so they can’t pass their stoopid genes on to a next generation. Catch and release.
The Gaia worshippers should be glad, they’re always yammering about over population and resource depletion.

I’m all for Heinlein’s definition of generalization over specialization, but that lovely Ms Thang can specialize in taking care of me 24/7/365.


A screaming, hormonal, teenaged girl…with TWO knives? I’d of beat feet my ownself. Prolly saw that dood was taking her Taylor Swift CDs.

Those young lads were taken all wrong. They just wanted to make sure they had a ride to the Easter Son Rise Services for today.

All that pretty and glorious gunz pr0n we had this week and you had to go and resurect an abomination to all that is glorious and Godly. *sigh*

I’ve pretty much checked off all the boxes that Heinlein wants, with the exception of dying gallantly…and I am ready to do that when the time comes. I’ve even specialized in bugging people.

Who said guys don’t make passes at girls that wear glasses? Line forms behind me, IDC SARC. I will woo, and court, and charm her with my ways.


Regarding the perp, Joseph Ridge, chased off by the girl…
“Ridge was arraigned in Wareham District Court Friday afternoon on charges of aggravated breaking and entering during the daytime, trespassing and disorderly conduct.
Police say Ridge was out on bail at the time of Friday’s arrest and has 140 prior arraignments, including violent offenses, dating back to 1980.” 😜

Sounds like he needs to be thrown under the jail, with sunlight piped in for one hour on alternate Tuesday nights.
Or stabbed/shot and left for dead in a muddy ditch.
Either one is good with me.

English! Do you “journalists” know how to write it?? This is how the sentence read when I saw it.

Avery ran downstairs, grabbed the steak knives and confronted the burglar, who dropped his stolen items, police and the teen’s mother,”

Wow, that’s quite a haul he was carrying there.

On an unrelated note. That is one of my favorite quotes from Heinlein. I agree, specialization is for insects.

She grabbed the steak knives because she had a stake in protecting her Mother and home.
