Wisc. woman, 96, stands up to, foils would-be robber

Posted: Updated:

A 96-year-old Wisconsin woman with nerves of steel stood her ground at her mom-and-pop corner market.

Police say the would-be robber may have thought Margaretta Wolf was an easy target when he entered her store. But, he was wrong.

Instead of giving in to his demand for cash, Margaretta stood her ground – even when the guy placed a knife on the check-out counter.

Eventually, she says, the masked man noticed a security camera mounted in a ceiling corner and aimed right at him. He took ran off… with nothing!
