One elderly woman incredibly fought back against a male attacker when she squeezed his balls to fend him off.
The woman was walking her dog along a tarmac track near to the old airfield at Stoke Orchard near Cheltenham last Monday morning around 11.30am, when a man jumped out of the bushes shouting at her to “get off my land”.
Shockingly, the man then punched the pensioner in the face, leaving her with a bruise and a small cut.
However, her quick-thinking reaction was fantastic – the woman seized the man by the testicles, causing him to fall to the ground in excruciating pain.
The elderly woman, who has not been named, then calmly walked away with her dog in the opposite direction, like an absolute boss.
Police are currently investigating the incident and have appealed for information.
The man is described as white, aged between 25 and 35, 5ft 8in tall, slim build, with dark hair and wearing blue jeans, a black/navy jacket, brown working boots and a navy baseball cap.
The woman described him as suntanned and she said he spoke with a “young voice”.
A Gloucestershire Police spokesman said:
Clearly this was an unusual method of self-defence and the attacker got more than he bargained for.
He certainly did. This guy picked on the wrong old woman!
