A thief in Sweden definitely underestimated his victim -- a feisty 101-year-old woman wielding a stick.
Police said the 44-year-old man, who allegedly stole from 16 elderly people by posing as a police officer, entered Barbro Bostrom's home, claimed to be an officer and pushed his way into her living room.
Bostrom grabbed a stick that she uses to pick up objects on the floor and waved it at him, yelling, "Do you really want it to be on your conscience that you murdered a 100-year-old."
She then struck him in the head. The thief took off when a neighbor heard the noise and rushed in to help.
The robber was arrested and charged with aggravated theft and fraud.
