A Gold Coast Grandmother is fast becoming a viral sensation, after a video of her beating up a handbag pincher emerged.
Security footage from the Pimpama Tavern, shows the woman going toe-to-toe with the would-be thief in the car park back in January.
It’s understood the man, aged 42, took the woman’s handbag from a table in the pub before making his way outside towards his car.

But she followed him, kicking off her shoes before tackling him to the ground.
She sustained cuts, bruises and cracked ribs in the ordeal, but was ultimately successful in getting her bag back.
Police were since able to use the security footage to track down the man, even though he’d left empty-handed.
He has since been charged and will front court on Wednesday.
The grandmother told Sunrise she was out celebrating her birthday that night but wasn’t going to let the alleged thief ‘steal the party’.
