80-Year-Old Woman Fends Off Armed, Would-Be Robbers with Fruit

Otilia Martins officially became the toughest 80-year-old woman in Massachusetts on Friday when she grabbed anything she could find — which turned out to be mangoes — to pelt two armed robbers inside the Continental Market in New Bedford, who were holding up the clerk at gunpoint. One of the robbers responded by pistol-whipping Martins before taking off, but she barely flinched and refused medical treatment for a cut on her head. [CBS]
