OKLAHOMA CITY -

A thief thought she had an easy target, a 75-year-old Yukon grandmother pumping gas at a 7-Eleven. But she learned quickly, you don’t mess with this grandmother.

The victim said she was pumping gas when a woman in her 20s approached her and asked for a ride. When the victim told her no, the suspect reportedly jumped into the front seat of the victim's car and tried to drive off. That’s when the victim said she jumped onto the suspect’s lap, shoved her elbow into the suspect’s throat and fought with her over the keys.

The suspect eventually ran off with the victim’s credit cards, but dropped her two cellphones.
