On Friday, in New Bedford, Massachusetts, an 80-year-old woman managed to thwart an armed robbery in progress.

The woman went into attack mode, and hurled mangoes at the assailants, one after the other.

Watch in the video as the thieves enter and point a gun at the clerk, swiping cash from the register. They are almost in the clear until about 0:20, when the fruit-wielding granny emerges from a corner and starts hurling her tropical weaponry their way.

One of the suspects hits her in the head with his pistol on the way out, but she got the last laugh. Her son-in-law managed to chase on of them down and tackled him in the parking lot.

The thief was arrested and granny is safe and sound.
