Foolhardy? Perhaps, but it is undoubtedly courageous. The video of an unlikely granny handbag heroine has captured public attention when she foiled a robbery attempt by six young men wielding hammers. She swung her bag at them forcing them to flee.

The spry English senior citizen did not hesitate to dash across the street and flay the men with her handbag. They fled on their motorcycles, but other people came to her aid and they managed to capture one of the robbers. The police have since arrested four men and are seeking two more.

This granny handbag heroine does not wish to be identified, but she is a shining example in an age where all too often, people are complacent and unwilling to act.
