My friend's Mum was burgled last week.
Two young lads called to her house looking for directions, which she gave. They thanked her and left.
A few minutes later her doorbell rang again, and they were there, hoods up. Quick as lightening, she tried to push the door closed, but they were quicker still, and pushed in the door.
The pushed her about, shouted at her, and dragged her from room to room looking for money. She gave them what she had, but they wanted more. They looked for jewellery, but all her jewellery was taken in another burglary a few years ago. At one point, she became breathless and thought she was going to die, so they shoved her onto a couch and gave her water to revive her.
Eventually, they shut her in a room and left.
This woman is 84 years old. She has a heart condition and many other medical complaints.
But I take my hat off to her, she stayed on her own a few nights later. They took her money, but she will not let them take her independence.
What a very brave lady. What cowardly young lads, to pick on her.
