As her story was revealed on Daily Mail on Wednesday, Ann Timson, have drove away six robbers who tried to steal from Michael Jones Jewelers, in the town of Northampton, in broad daylight on Monday.

“Three lads followed him and when I saw their arms going I thought the kid was being beaten up. My mother’s instinct kicked in and I ran across the road, shouting at the lads to stop it.” Mrs. Timson told the Daily Mail.

However, it was late that she realized that there are six of them and the others are trying to smash the glass of the jewelry shop and apparently to steal valuable things inside.

Mrs. Timson then used her handbag to fight off all of them despite one of them raising a hammer on her. But as passers-by noticed the commotion, they tried to escape but one of them went down while riding on his motorcycle.

“A lot were standing there filming or taking photos and I wonder whether more people didn’t intervene because they thought the raid was being mocked up.” The super grandma told of the people around, although the robber who went down was arrested by the people.

Later, it was known that Ann Timson had spent ten years challenging violent criminals within their neighborhood in Spring Boroughs estate, with drug dealers and other unlawful individuals,

The super grandma, who now works for Northampton council as a warden for elderly and disabled residents, says that she is not a hero but somebody had to do it.

”In the cold light of day, I know I put myself in danger. But I probably would do the same again.” She added.

Reports said that a total of four suspected thieves were arrested by the authorities, with ages 18, 22, 25 and 39, and were charged with robbery and motor vehicle theft.
