Elderly Man Fends off Pickpocket with Cane

(WDIV) Chet Dunham, 72, of Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan had just finished breakfast and was walking down the street when Jeffery Jones approached.

"I felt him in my pocket. I turned to see, well I see him, and there's nobody gonna have their hand in my pocket without me reacting. That's how fast it was, just seconds," said Dunham.

His aluminum cane scared off the 5-foot-10, 275-pound pickpocket. Jones backed away, saying he was just messing around.

"And I'm just waiting to see if he comes back at me to attack me and when I see his feet are planted I decide I've gotta get out of there and get help. I can't do anything with him," said Dunham.
