Today’s young people do not know how much life teaches them to face different situations. This became more apparent in a situation they faced.
Some young people with criminal tendencies wanted to commit theft. But what happened to him will make them never approach the elderly.
It is also to teach other young people not to do the same actions as them.
Winifred Peel, the 77-year-old grandmother, had planned a day like any other. He was out for a walk and decided to stop at an ATM.
That’s when she encountered Piper Dumitru, Florin Geblescu, and Felix Stoica. They had a ‘perfect plan’ that went down the drain when they realized they messed with the wrong person.
When she was withdrawing money, she realized that someone was standing behind her. He thought it was someone waiting in line. The person knocked Peel off balance while his friend tried to get £200.
She knew they planned this action as she recalled seeing them the day before. They were following her from the moment she got out of the bank.
This quick-thinking lady knew she mustn’t let those youngsters make her a victim, so she grabbed one of them by the collar and banged his head on the ATM using all her strength. She then alerted the police about the incident.
The police managed to find the boys and put them behind bars.
Peel was relieved to learn the attackers were jailed and says that although she hoped they would serve some jail time, she initially believed they would just be told off.
This incident affected Peel in a way she never thought it could affect her. She told Metro, “They didn’t care about how this would affect me. I would definitely say this has changed my life, I will never have the confidence I once did. I only hope my confidence returns.”
We are lucky this fierce lady wasn’t injured, although she now fears that someone could attack her again. However, thanks to her courage, as well as the fact that she was a regular gym visitor in her 70s, she could get out of that situation as a winner.
Thugs believe the elderly are an easy target, but luckily there are more people like Winifred, who fight back when they find themselves in trouble. Just take a look at the video below. It shows a pensioner who pushes back against the robber who attacks him at the ATM and throws in a bunch of punches.
