The intended victim was just trying to be nice and give a hitchhiker a ride early in the morning. However, this was no ordinary hitchhiker.
A Henderson County resident taught a hitchhiker a valuable lesson: Never bring a knife to a gun fight.
Henderson police said Corydon resident Raymond Givens, 45, was driving in the area of Henderson Community College around 1 a.m. Friday when he stopped to pick up a hitchhiker.
Givens told authorities that the male hitchhiker pulled a butcher knife on Givens and demanded his wallet, officials said.
“Givens stated he pulled a handgun on the subject and told him to get out of his vehicle,” a news release said.
At that point, “the male subject exited the vehicle and took off running toward Corydon,” officials said.
The hitchhiker is described as a white male with dirty blonde hair. He was wearing an orange sock hat, an Army jacket, blue jeans and brown boots.
