Grandma Throws Mangoes at Thieves: It was early afternoon and 80 year old Otilia Martins was shopping at her son-in-law's convenience store in New Bedford, Mass. Two men entered the store and one of them pointed a gun at the cashier's face. Martins, a Portuguese immigrant, became incensed. She plucked a mango from her shopping basket and flung it at the robber. She grabbed another one and ran at him, threatening him with it. The man hit her in the face with his gun and then he and his accomplice ran off. Martins suffered a gash on her forehead. The men were arrested and charged with armed robbery, carrying a dangerous weapon and assault and battery on a person over the age of 60. No word on how the mangoes fared. via Huffington Post
