Granny used karate to scare off burglar

`A 75-year-old Romanian pensioner literally knocked out a burglar with karate moves she said she learned from television.

Anica D, who lives in Popeni village in Vaslui county, told police she was sleeping when the intruder broke into her house and attacked her.

The woman said she shouted for help but nobody came so she tried some karate she had learned from a self-defence TV programme.

Anica successfully managed to “immobilise” the burglar and then phoned police who arrested the man, the Ziarul newspaper reports.’
