Gee, such drama! Any witnesses from all the nearby homes on Channing?

Wow! What a brave, gutsy woman that gardener is! I am truly impressed! Glad she knew when to quit, though, or it might have turned into a murder as well as an armed robbery.
Obviously, she got a good look at him and gave a solid description, and hopefully there were witnesses.
Almost sounds like a competing gardener, though, stealing a leaf blower.

So many possible responses to this....
-The rarity of a female gardener
-Her stupid or gutsy? attempt to stop the robbery
-The robber's stupid gutsiness using a weapon & committing the crime in broad daylight
-Any hope he just doesn't like the hideous leaf blowers we all detest?
But seriously, what a cretin. I'm glad no one was hurt.
