Kent police have said a mugger who attacked an 80 year old woman in Whitstable , Kent this morning got more than he'd bargained for as the plucky pensioner fought him off and punched him in the face before he fled .

The woman bravely fought off the attacker, and it is believed that she may have punched him in the mouth during the struggle. The suspect was said to be dressed in black with a hoody tied up to hide his mouth and nose. It is thought he may have grey hair. After the incident he left the alleyway in the direction of the Crab and Winkle Way.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham is overseeing the investigation, he said: “It appears the suspect has picked on the wrong person in this instance and she was able to bravely fight him off.

So often these types of story have a less than happy ending but in this case it's nice to see the victim become the victor

Sadly, that wouldn't me surprise in the slightest. The poor old bird will about get arrested for GBH or common assault.

Well worth it though... lol

The subtext of this story is that women, and old women, in particular, are defenseless. Interesting that the story didn't refer to the gray-haired burglar as an old man : "Old woman hits old man burglar".

Only if you choose to read it that way.
In reality most 80 year old men and women are practically defenseless due to their age , this woman proved to be the exception.

The article states that he may have grey hair not that he has grey hair , even so you don't have to be old to have grey hair , I know people in their 40s who have gone grey but I wouldn't class them as old men.

You make good points, but the subtext still stands. We still see articles with headlines like "80 Year Old Granny Earns Degree" but rarely see comparable headlines for men. In this case they at least left out her relationship to men and children.
