Vigil was able to grab his gun by the muzzle and tried to wrest it from Glatman. As they fought over the gun Glatman accidentally fired a bullet that passed through Vigil’s skirt, grazing her thigh.
At that point Vigil bit Glatman’s hand and was able to get hold of the gun. She pointed it at Glatman and held him there until police, alerted by a passing motorist, arrived on the scene. “I bit his wrist and he cried out, then suddenly I found I had the gun in my hand. I turned it around and pointed it at him. If I had known how to fire it, I believe I could have killed him. But he just stood there and watched me and after a while the police came.” (27 October 1958)
