77 Year Old Woman Chases Away Would-be Robber with Broom

Posted: Updated:
Broom vs. Gun? In this case, the broom won.

A 77 year old woman chased away a man intending to rob her store, the B&C Music and Trading Post in North Carolina.

“I told him I’d break the broom over him if he didn’t get out of here and leave us alone. And I said I’m calling 911,” said Betsy Johnson.

In the video, you see Johnson hold up her broom, and the man runs out of her store. Her husband of 57 years is in the background as it all happens.

“It makes me cry now to think about how stupid I was, but maybe it helped,” she said.

Her 81 year old husband Curtis Johnson isn't doubting her heroism.

“She’s pretty well the boss around the house, so she knows how to do it. How to get it done."
