Heroic gran fights off alleged thief
An alleged thief has met his match in a Gold Coast grandmother after he tried to take her handbag from a busy pub.
In dramatic footage obtained by Sunrise, the woman, who was reportedly celebrating her birthday at the Pimpama Tavern in January this year, chases the 42-year-old man through the carpark.
According to Sunrise, the man took the handbag off a table before running through the carpark with the no-nonsense gran in hot pursuit.
The woman, who suffers from a medical condition, kicked off her shoes and engaged in a tussle, grabbing the man in a headlock before re-claiming her bag.
Reportedly, she was left with cracked ribs, cuts and bruises following the altercation.
The alleged thief has since been charged and is due to appear in court this week.
