Police in Italy said two men who attempted to steal a chain from the neck of a 90-year-old man were foiled when he fought back with a walking stick.
Investigators said the Moroccan-born attackers were fended off by the elderly man Wednesday in Turin and were arrested after fleeing the scene, ANSA reported Wednesday.
Police said the incident was similar to a previous attack a few days earlier involving an elderly woman fending off some attempted thieves with a walking stick.
