4 Men with Sledgehammers vs. 1 Old Woman with Purse

(Video Link)

It wasn't her fight; it wasn't her store. But when four men in Northampton, UK, tried to smash their way into a jewelry store with sledgehammers, an old woman with a purse decided to put an end to their thievery:

Four men are being held by police after a gang of crash-helmeted robbers wielding sledgehammers was put to flight by a pensioner who attacked them with a handbag.

Video footage of the attempted robbery at a jeweller's in Northampton town centre showed the unlikely have-a-go-hero crossing a road and jogging briskly towards the six-strong mob as they smashed the shop's windows.

The raiders, who had arrived at the scene on three scooters, drove away just moments after the red-coated pensioner, thought to be aged in her 70s, began lashing out at them with a large black handbag.

I'm with Raf3. I don't buy it either. Maybe a stunt. Just seemed strange all around and strange how everyone is dressed in black or brown or blue, EXCEPT the old lady. And she's in the brightest Santa Claus red possible (to highlight her?)

I'm a skeptic.

I am pretty sure it was the officer in the high-vis jacket and 5 chavs dressed in black that were running (waddling in the cop's case)in that scared off the guys.

Respect towards the old lady, though.
