This is the dramatic moment an elderly woman fought off a mugger to stop him stealing her cellphone outside her home in Colombia.
A surveillance camera recorded the moment two male suspects drove up on a motorcycle to the residence located in the department of Santander on Sunday afternoon.
The woman was relaxing on a rocking chair and scrolling through her smartphone when one of the individuals approached her and tried to snatch it.
The brave woman responded by snatching the mugger’s motorcycle helmet.
She subsequently swung at him with the helmet as he took off running before dropping the phone.
He then picked up an object and ran for his motorcycle before escaping with his accomplice.
A man could be seen in the video sitting on his rocking chair and did not move to prevent the attack.
No arrests had been reported as of Tuesday.
