Elizabeth Foxwell, whose blog can be found here: http://elizabethfoxwell.blogspot.fr/ did a little further digging into our friend Philadelphian Louis Haas, the crime fighting jeweler. You can read our original post about Haas here: http://tinyurl.com/Fighting-Jeweler
Foxwell’s digging turned up an article in The Reading Eagle from 1924, which reveals that Haas, a former boxer, was the victim of yet another attempted robbery. This time three men attempted to loot the store, and when Haas tried to stop them, the robbers shot him three times before fleeing. Haas still wouldn’t quit, and grabbing his revolver he staggered to the street, but the robbers were out of sight.
Many Thanks Elizabeth!
