Serena Williams was dining with a friend when a thief snatched her phone right in front of her and Serena turned into a superhero. She posted the story about the ordeal on her Facebook page.
“Than (sic) when least expected low and behold this common petty thief grabbed my phone and swiftly left. I looked at the chair, than shouted “Omg that dude took my phone!!” Not thinking I reacted (hence the superwoman photo) I jumped up, weaved my way in and out of the cozy restaurant (leaping over a chair or two) and chased him down.
He began to run but I was too fast. (Those sprints came in handy) I was upon him in a flash!”
When Williams caught up with the thief, he play dumb before handing over the phone.
“In the most menacing yet calm no nonsense voice I could muster muster, I asked him if he “accidentally” took the wrong phone. He stumbled on his words probably not expecting this to happen. While he was thinking of the right thing to say and eventually he said “Gosh you know what I did! It was so confusing in there. I must have grabbed the wrong phone.”
Williams gave thanks to her intense training, among other things, for saving the day.
“I’ve got the got the speed, the power, the body, the seduction, the sex appeal, the strength, the leadership and yet the calm to weather the storm.”
she ended the post with a photo of her dressed like Superwoman
I’m sure that thief will think twice the next time he plays grab-a-phone.
