Pensioner shakes off attackers

A PENSIONER beat off four men who were about to attack him by threatening them with a nerve-paralysing spray. The 70-year-old was approached by men on a street in Ružomberok, and after being threatened pulled out the spray and warned them he was ready to use it. The four men backed off and eventually ran away.
