96 Year-Old Woman Frustrates Robber into Running Away
According to the Associated Press, on July 15th a masked robber entered a neighborhood grocery store in Marshfield, Wisconsin with the intention of robbing the store but things didn't go as planned. Margaretta Wolf, who has owned the store for 54 years, was wiling to give the robber all the Tootsie Rolls he wanted but she refused to give him the cash. When he told her to walk to the back of the store, she said no. When he told her to open the cash register, she said no. When he threatened her with his knife, she threatened him with the police.
