At first she seems to have thought it was a fight, and headed over to break it up or at least get a closer look. But “[w]hen I got closer to them I realised it was a robbery and then I was even more angry that they felt they could get away with what they were doing in broad daylight. . . .What concerned me was that too many people just stood around watching as if they were in shock and nobody was doing anything.” She continued, “One of the gang shot off … on a scooter and nearly hit a woman and baby in her buggy. I clobbered him with my shopping but he got away.” But as you have probably seen, two of them were so spooked that they crashed their scooter and were nabbed, along with two others.

The heroine denies being a heroine and has asked not to be identified.

I’m glad somebody was filming this but I like to think that once I saw Mrs. Claus zooming in to take on six criminals by herself I would have put down the camera and tried to help. But I guess you never know until the moment arrives.
