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. The thief ran towards Church Street, but then changed direction to a small lane near Theatre Lane. I got closer and I caught him,” said the hero.
