A man attempted to heartlessly rob an 82-year-old shopkeeper, but she wasn’t as easy of a target as he initially thought she was.

An elderly woman named June Turner from Lichfield Street in Westminster, London lived in the area trouble-free until this one particular day.

A man tried to steal from her.

“A man came in the shop and [he was] demanding money. And I wouldn’t give it to him,” the brave woman recounted. The whole ordeal was captured by a security camera.

The robber was covered in a blue bubble jacket. It was clearly seen that he was demanding June give him some money.

When June didn’t hand him any, he decided to take it into his own hands.

He went around for the till.

He made it to the money drawer but ended up dropping it on the floor. Then June immediately got her cane and hit the robber. Despite this, he was unstoppable.

“He wouldn’t stop,” June recounted. “I pulled his shirt and I tried to do what I can for him. And that was the nearest thing I could get was my stick and I gave him a good hiding!”

What a courageous lady indeed.

At this point, she was still unable to see the man’s face.

She continued, “And then he ran and opened the cigarettes and punched the cigarettes all on the floor. Then he knocked me on the floor and he ran out.”

In the clip, June was seen sitting on the floor as the robber dashed out. It’s honestly infuriating to see. How could someone do this to a lady her age?

Her story spread through the town.

Now it’s being spread all over the world via the internet.

Everyone now knows her name and the tale of how she didn’t back down from the robber.

While most people would run away to save themselves, she stayed true to her call of duty and protected the till. It’s even more amazing that it was all a success.

June definitely feels great about how everything turned out. She didn’t seem a bit scared. In fact, she was even able to laugh about the whole situation.

She’s a real keeper.

Despite her being knocked off, she didn’t seem like she suffered from any injury. She isn’t only brave but she’s one tough lady for sure. The robber definitely picked the wrong target.

Then, the police came to assess the situation and were glad that things turned out the way they did.

Although the robber was able to escape, everyone believes that he’s definitely not coming back because Miss June is ready to smack him again.

It’s not every day that we hear a story about an 82-year-old lady being robbed, but it’s even less frequently we find out that the lady was able to fend him off.

No wonder June was the talk of the town. She’s showing the world that age doesn’t matter, bravery does.
