Cops: Men had to fight off Groveland lawnmower thieves

Groundskeepers mowing the lawn at a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witness found themselves in a desperate fight Friday with two men determined to steal their mower, police say.  According to an arrest report, Edward Stiles was cutting grass at the hall at the corner of Bluegrass and Roxbury in Groveland when two men puled up in a pickup truck, put a push mower in the back of their truck and started to drive off. Stiles ran after the truck and pulled the mower out of the back.
