A run-of-the-mill bank robbery at a Shanghai subbranch of the Agricultural Bank of China this past Monday quickly went downhill for the thief, who was thwarted by staff members and people outside of the facility in just five minutes. Perhaps most heroic of the defenders was one middle-aged cleaner who rushed past armed guards towards the knife-wielding man and gallantly began swatting him away with only a giant mop as her weapon. Look at that auntie go.
According to ECNS.cn, each of the five people who helped detain the robber was rewarded 10,000 yuan by the bank for their response.
