Jordan, 20, was initially robbed of his iPhone at knifepoint. He went home and told his dad, Derek Grant, who proceeded to locate the stolen device through Find my iPhone. Grant and his two younger sons aged 16 and 17 confronted Patrick Bradley, a thief who had a significant record for violence.
Grant demanded Bradley hand over the phone but instead Bradley stabbed Grant in the left eye. Grant retaliated by grabbing his own knife he brought for safety and proceeded to stab Bradley multiple times, ultimately killing the robber.
Father-of-four Grant was arrested and later said: “I wish to declare for the record that at the time of this incident, I was acting in self-defence.”
