Bar cleaning lady hits burglar with his own crowbar on the head

A Romanian Mrs Mop who wrestled a crowbar from two crooks and used it to beat them over the head until they fled is to get a bravery award after her efforts were recorded on CCTV.

The 38 year-old woman who had been cleaning at the bar in Suceava, eastern Romania, in the early hours of the morning said: "I heard a noise and when I opened the door I saw two men in the hall with a crowbar.

I grabbed it and started hitting them with it. I got in a few good blows before they ran off."

Police are now hunting the pair using the CCTV images caught on tape.

A spokesman for Suceava police said: "We don't usually encourage have a go heroes but on the tape you can see the thieves will think twice before doing it again."
