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.
