Burgler gets a good beating when he breaks into 72 year olds house back home ! Posted on August 10, 2013January 30, 2020 by Steve Carpenter 10 Aug Well, Saturday Morning, My Birthday today and loved reading about some wanker trying to burgle a an fella’s house and ends up getting a right good belting from an EX Boxer, made my day. A burglar in England who broke into a house and threatened a 72 year old man with a knife got more than he bargained for when the victim turned out to be a retired boxer who left him bruised and bleeding. Frank Corti, 72, who served with the Royal Engineers in North Africa from 1956-58, dodged the knife and punched Gregory McCalium, 23, twice in the face, giving him a black eye and a swollen lip. He then restrained the attacker until police arrived. McCalium, a barman, was given a four-and-a-half year prison sentence at Oxford Crown Court on Monday for aggravated burglary and was told by the judge he had “got what he deserved”. The court heard Mr Corti was at home in Botley, Oxford, with his wife Margaret, 72, when McCalium, a neighbour, forced his way in at 8am on Aug 19 last year. McCalium was drunk. Speaking after the case, Mr Corti said: “I was scared when he first drew the knife, but my old training must have kicked in because I just punched him as hard as I could and he went down like a sack of spuds. If you can’t defend what’s yours, where are we at?” McCalium had denied the charge and claimed he could not remember what happened.
