A robber in the U.K. learned the hard way not to judge a book by its cover after an 81-year-old granny fought him off with her walking stick. June Turner was working at a shop when a 28 burglar ran in and tried to rob the place, but he had no idea what he was up against.
The feisty senior was caught on camera smacking the guy with a cane she used after breaking her hip three years earlier. Turner says she couldn’t find the panic button, “I said, ‘You’re not having my money,' so I got my stick and I really belted him with it.” Her tactic worked, the video shows the robber eventually running out practically empty-handed.
Yesterday, for her bravery, she was awarded the Amplifon Awards for Brave Britons in the Act of Courage category.
The grandmother insists she’d do the same thing again - “but with something heavier.” Turner says, “He won’t be so lucky next time.”
Aaron Mountford was sentenced to 2 years in prison for his crime.
