NRA member Geoffrey Tilga purchased items from a convenience store and began walking home. Unbeknownst to Tilga, two men – one of them wielding a knife – quietly trailed him. Police say one of the suspects approached Tilga and grabbed cash out of his back pocket. Tilga spun around and the suspects threatened him with a knife.
