DESPITE attempts to make a deal with another “black folk” to let him go, a thief was arrested on Saturday after he was caught by a member of the public who risked his life to recover a stranger’s cellphone.

“While I was still bamboozled by that, a young Indian woman came along, screaming and saying she had been robbed. She pointed to [the man] and I went after him. He ran away and I pursued him.
