Burglar stymied by eldery woman!
Cane whacks burglar away!
A suspected burglar tried entering an apartment at 450 5th Street minutes ago – but apparently an elderly woman was on the ball and struck the male with her cane – and he “fled to the fire escape and roof” (according to what was overhead on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel).
Police are on scene now – and are checking the area out. There are many escape routes and fire escapes – so this looks difficult in my opinion…
