Robber Puts Knife to Grandma’s Throat, Grandma Puts Gun In His Face

You don’t mess with this Grandma.

On Monday, a would-be robber put a knife to the throat of a 74-year-old Fort Worth, Texas, grandma — and the grandma responded by pointing a gun at the robber’s face and telling him to “back off.”

The attempted robbery ended at that point.

According to NBC 5, Jewell Turner was sitting in her vehicle outside a doctor’s office when the someone tapped on her window, indicating he needed directions. She rolled down the window and said the man just small-talked and asked for directions, then pulled a knife and put it to her throat.

Turner said the man said, “I don’t want to hurt you, but I want your money. And I will hurt you if I have to.”

At that point Turner says she thought about reaching for her deceased husband’s knife — which was in the vehicle — but then remembered that she had her pistol with her. This is how she described the events that unfolded next: “I seen the gun laying there. And I figured that would work better than the knife. I just reached down, got the gun and turned around and pointed it to his face. And I told him, I said, ‘You back off, or I’ll blow your head off.’”
