MARSHFIELD (Wisconsin) - Read the whole thing.
A 96-year-old Marshfield woman with nerves of steel prevented her mom-and-pop grocery store from being robbed.
Police say the would-be robber may have thought the woman was an easy target when he entered Wolf's Grocery Store in Marshfield.
But the woman put up a fight the man never expected.
Police say the man wearing a mask ordered Wolf to open the cash register.
"I said I'm not opening up that cash register and that's it, I'm not opening it, I said you can have all the Tootsie Rolls you want but I am not opening that cash register," said Wolf.
Wolf has run the store for more than 50 years. She says she stood her ground Monday for a simple reason—the money was hers.
