Six men were trying to rob a Rolex store in Northampton, England, when a 70-year old woman ran towards the criminals and prevented the assault.
The scene was captured when the six men on a bike were trying to get into the store to complete the assault.
At the time many people were on the street who did nothing to prevent the assault. However a 70 years’ ‘super-granny’ run towards the six men and began to hit them with her handbag, avoiding theft.
Sarah Jane Brown, a store employee said:
“We were terrified. We locked the door. We hid under the desk. We were really scared. And then, we looked outside and, God love her, she was running down the road, with her handbag in the air, banging them on the back of their helmet with her handbag.”
Police later announced that four of the six men were caught and taken to justice.
