Nancy Fredrickson, 70, of Seattle was getting some things out of her car on Saturday when she was approached by would-be thieves, one of whom pointed a gun in her face.
One of the teens got a hold of her keys and the rest of the group climbed into the car, ready to make their escape. But...
"I got five-speed in the there, and they couldn't figure out how to get it going," she said.
They couldn't drive a stick! They got away on foot, which is fortunate for them. Nancy has a black belt in karate.
