According to WSVN, Brian Moreno Olivera, 21, tried to take a gold chain off the neck of a 78-year-old woman on Wednesday.

He bit off more than he could chew, though, because the victim, a 78-year-old woman, turned around and began hitting Olivera with her umbrella. Very shortly thereafter, a Hialeah Police officer came and took him into custody.

Police tell WSVN that Olivera, who was charged with assault and battery, may have targeted other elderly women.
