Step to grandma, scoundrels and thieves, and she will Eff. You. Up.

As told today by the Belleville News-Democrat: A  couple of old ladies returned home in Fairview Heights when they realized there was a burglary in progress. One took out her cell phone and called 911. But the crook emerged and tried to snatch it out of her hand.

That's when the other old lady started to pound on that stupid punk with her cane -- so much so that he ran away! 

Suspect was described as
a black man in his 20s, 5-foot-7-inches tall and about 160 pounds. He was driving a silver four-door vehicle believed to be a Ford Taurus with a temporary Illinois tag
Call Fairview Heights Police Department at 489-2100 with any info.
