6:26 am on 28 May 2011

In Australia, three elderly women have been dubbed 'super grans' after they fought off a robber who had a knife.

The women, aged 71, 82, and 89, were in a multi-level car park in Melbourne when the man got out of a stolen car and held a knife to the throat of one of them.

The ABC reports hit the robber over the head with her handbag and a passerby chased him away.
