In December, at the Florida school board shooting, a brave purse wielding woman attacked a gunman. Her risky but brave actions earned her the title of hero.
Now, an elderly woman in Northampton, England appears to have chased off a gang of 6 robbers armed with sledge hammers.
The incident was caught on tape and shows the woman running across the street and whacking the bad guys with her purse. The men immediately drive off on scooters, except for one klutz who falls to the ground and is held up by the woman then apprehended by other pedestrians. Three other robbers were quickly rounded up and two are still being sought by police.
Now in all honesty, what likely happened is the robbers gave up the heist when metal gates came down blocking their efforts. But, still it’s fun to think this elderly woman stopped the bandits single-handed.
Watch the video and tell us what you think. Is this woman brave or stupid or a little of both?
