Don’t Mess With Weight Lifting Grandma – She Slams Down Purse Thief

See also

Punks who love to prey on the old and defenseless will not want a run-in with Shirley Rupp. It seems that on New Year’s Day a thug snuck up behind the weight lifting granny in Tucson, Arizona and got the surprise of his life when he attempted to steal Rupp’s purse, reported Fox News.

Instead of being afraid, the 64-year-old grandmother of six ran after the thief and tackled him, forcing the man to the ground. The startled would-be thief hightailed it away from the grandmother weightlifter and Rupp did not lose her wallet which was dropped by the attacker.

The whole attempted robbery was captured New Year's Day on a nearby surveillance camera which shows the attacker trying to rob Shirley Rupp and also shows her running after him.

Even though the assailant is on the lam, he may have to seriously re-consider the next older person he intends to rob. That person may just give him a taste of Smith & Wesson.
