An 86-year-old woman fought off a potential thief with a package of bacon.


The woman took out £250 before she entered the Iceland supermarket in Manchester to buy some groceries. Another woman grabbed her shopping cart and demanded the money.

Instead of giving in, the elderly woman grabbed her package of bacon and whacked the potential robber in the head.

The offender left the store and the elderly woman continued shopping like nothing ever happened. But the police said the woman was “very shook up.” If anyone has information they ask them to contact the police.
