Oftentimes people commit crimes because they’re either desperate or they see an easy opportunity to get away with doing something wrong. When three men approached an elderly lady to rob her, they were desperate and thought that she would be an easy target. The woman was Winifred Peel, a grandmother who lived alone near Liverpool, England, was 77 years old and all alone. Although she may have looked like a harmless old lady that the men could easily overpower, looks can often be deceiving.

Winifred, a widow whose husband had passed years ago, was still quite socially, as well as physically, active. In fact, she and her friends took exercise classes three days a week that were designed for the elderly. She worked hard to stay fit and went to the gym to work out on her own, lifting weights and running on the treadmill.

Winifred also walked everywhere. Even though she couldn’t drive anymore, it didn’t matter because she could easily walk to most of the places she needed to. That day she had been out running errands when she decided to stop at a nearby ATM to get some money. She walked up to the outdoor cash machine to withdraw 200 euros when midway through her transaction she felt a disturbing presence. There was someone standing behind her and they were way too close for comfort.

There were actually three men behind her, and they were there to rob her. One of them pushed against her while another grabbed her money and snatched it right out of her hand. With her hands now free, she grabbed one of her attackers by the head and slammed it against the cold hard metal ATM! She fought back valiantly, but the three cowards ran off after that, taking all her money with them. She immediately went into the bank and alerted the teller to call the police, then told the manager what had happened.

According to Winifred, the men had spoken in Romanian and she had recognized them as having come out of the bank earlier. When the police arrived, they obtained the security footage from the bank and later that evening it ran on all the local news stations in order to help identify the men.

Tips poured in after the segment and police now had all three suspects in their sights. Piper Dumitru, Florin Geblescu, and Felix Stoica, Romanian teenagers living in Manchester, England, were arrested and all three ended up pleading guilty to robbery. A judge sentenced them to jail for 8 months, 18 months, and 2 years, which Winifred was happy to hear about. She thought they’d either get off completely or get just a slap on the wrist and was glad to see lengthier than usual sentences handed out.

When people heard about her story and how she fought back against the three muggers, banging one of their heads against the cash machine, it quickly went viral. It turned out that this was the first and only fight she’s ever been in. In the end, it’s granny 1, criminals 0.
