Little old lady stops sledgehammer gangbangers robbery try!

That’s her in the red coat – on her way to battle!Click on pic for video!

A gang of men armed with sledgehammers who were attempting to smash their way into a jeweller’s were repelled by an elderly woman who beat them away with her handbag.

The gang of six – all wearing crash helmets – had clearly planned the assault and arrived on a motorbike and two motor scooters shortly before 9.30am yesterday…

The three men who were riding pillion dismounted and immediately began swinging their heavy hammers at the glass of the jeweller’s door and plate glass windows, while the riders kept the engines running…

Most people on the street were content to watch the assault but one woman ran at the men apparently unhindered by her large bright red coat and thick scarf.

She plunged into the gang, swinging her handbag with two hands, and sent the men running for their transport as the staff at Michael Jones Jewellers in Northampton town centre managed to bring down security shutters.

Two of the men were so unsettled by the unlikely crime fighter that they overturned their scooter as they attempted to flee.

Onlookers encouraged by the woman’s bravery then came to her aid and one of the men was pinned to the ground before police arrived.

Four men aged 18, 22, 25 and 39 were subsequently arrested and police are seeking two of the men.

Bravo! That’s my kind of granny.

Probably as old as me; but, she appears to be able to run faster. And that was AT the thugs!
