78-year-old woman fights off 28-year-old robber with penknife
The 28-year-old man barged right into a convenience store with a mere penknife, thinking that he could easily steal some cash from the 78-year-old employee.
However, his plan failed as the 78-year-old woman put up a fight against him. The thief eventually left the scene without gaining a single cent. The woman left uninjured. A report was lodged and the man was caught about 5 hours later.
He will be charged today with attempted armed robbery. If convicted, he could face jail sentences between 2 to 7 years and receive at least 12 strokes of the cane.
Kudos to the grit and boldness of the woman.
