The unthinkable happened in Asafo, a suburb of Kumasi when 18-year-old Elizabeth Adarkwa single-handedly overpowered a notorious phone snatcher at Adum and handed him over to the Asokwa police.
Luck ran out for James Amesiba, the phone snatcher when Elizabeth, a former 100, 200 and 400 meters athlete popped out of the windows of the taxi she was travelling in, gave the young man a hot chase for about 10 minutes before overpowering him.
The physically fit lady trapped the man to the ground and screamed for help till some youth assisted her to send the thief to the police station.
The lady told the Daily Graphic she was returning from a church programme with a brother at Santase and on reaching Asafo, she decided to make a quick call while they were stuck in heavy traffic.
Amesiba who was said to be lurking around apparently spotted Elizabeth making the call and in a flash, snatched the phone and bolted.
