An opportunist thief recently got the surprise of his life when he tried to grab a cellphone from a female farmer walking down the street. The young woman turned around and beat him over the head with her keys until he gave up and ran away empty-handed.
THE VIDEO SHOWS THE THIEF GETTING PUNCHED REPEATEDLY
The young female farmer, Bernadine van Wyk (25), said she was delivering goods in Klerksdorp on Wednesday morning when she was attacked.
“I knew it is a dangerous area. That is why I hid my handbag in the bakkie and only got out with my cellphone and keys.”
A modest Van Wyk said she instinctively reacted when she realized the man was trying to rob her.
“I just went into fight mode and started beating the man with the keys I had in my hand.”

“I was a bit upset but angrier at the situation.”
The born and bred farm girl from Ottosdal said this the second time she was in a situation like this.
