One thief got more than he bargained for when he tried to snatch Queen Serena Williams’ iPhone Tuesday evening.
While the tennis star was having dinner with a friend, her “superhero sense” kicked in when she noticed a man lurking near her table.
“Soooooo yesterday at dinner the CRAZIEST THING happened to me,” Williams wrote on Facebook. “This guy is standing next to me and something (I have now dubbed it my SUPERHERO sense) told me to watch him. My phone was sitting in the chair but I just didn’t feel right. He was there too long.”
As Williams tried to figure out why the man was standing close to her table, he grabbed her phone and dashed out of the restaurant.
That’s when Williams sprung into action.
“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!” Williams explained. “In the most menacing yet calm no nonsense voice I could muster I kindly asked him if he ‘accidentally’ took the wrong phone.”
