WISCONSIN (KMOV) – A would-be robber picked the wrong elderly store owner to try and steal from in Wisconsin.
The owner, Margaretta Wolf, was approached by a thief armed with a pocket knife demanding money from the register.
The 96-year-old simply stressed the money was hers and she would not back down.
“I said you can have all the tootsie rolls you want, but I am not opening that cash register.”
Eventually, the robber became so frustrated that he ran out of the store.
Wolf has been running her store in Wisconsin for fifty years.
