Schönebeck (dpa / sa) - A 71-year-old has scared away two alleged robbers.

As the police announced on Thursday, she was with a walker in Schönebeck (Salzlandkreis) when two unknown boys asked for money.

Despite the threatening situation, the elderly woman was not deterred on Wednesday evening and called her son on his cell phone.

The two boys went to donate.

With the help of the woman's son, a twelve-year-old and a little later a 13-year-old were identified as suspects.
