A fearless woman refused to back down when a man appeared to point a gun at her face in the middle of a residential road in shocking footage. 

The clip, filmed in Bradford, West Yorkshire, captures the brave woman standing on the pavement with two others as a man approaches from the road.

As he does, he appears to pull out a gun – which was later confirmed to be an imitation firearm –  and points it in the woman’s face.

She raises her arms in the air for a moment before attempting to push the apparent gun away from her face and confronting the man in question.   

The woman manages to stand her ground as the man backs off, tucking the apparent weapon into his waistband.
