The attack took place in an off-licence at Friern Barnet Road, Barnet (London, UK). The shop's owner, the lady's son, left for a few minutes to buy some food to-go, so the elderly lady took to the cashiers while he was gone.
The suspect was described as a black male, wearing hooded dark clothing. According to the police, he entered the shop and took a can from the fridge, before going over to the counter to pay for his drink.
But the moment the old lady opened the cash drawer to give him change, he immediately reached over the counter and took hold of the register. The old lady, shouting at the man, refused to let go until the man stabbed her left hand with a screwdriver and fled the scene.
Thankfully, it was nothing fatal. She was immediately taken to the hospital after the attack, where she was treated for her injuries.
