Grandma scares off knife-wielding store pulling a gun

Pulling a knife on this brave grandmother almost proved fatal for a suspected armed robber.

Ernestine Aldana was working behind the counter of her convenience store in Milwaukee when the man, wearing a dark hat and grey top, appeared to threaten her with a knife before grabbing the cash register.

But in dramatic CCTV footage released by the police, he is soon seen sprinting to the door in terror after the 48-year-old pulled out a gun and pointed at him.
