Serena Williams told an interesting story via Facebook this morning. The World No. 1 was eating Chinese food for dinner yesterday when a suspicious man grabbed her phone and ran out of the restaurant.

Serena went into superhero mode, chased him down and got it back, returning to a standing ovation at the restaurant.

Her story:

Soooooo yesterday at dinner the CRAZIEST THING happened to me. I was sitting enjoying some Chinese food (delicious may I add) and this guy stands next to me. It was only 2 of us sitting at a 4 person table just chatting like we have not seen each other in years. Anyways I digress, so 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. “Is he a customer?” I thought “Is he waiting on the bathroom?” nonetheless I tried to shake his this eerie feeling. However, I kept watching him from the corner of my eye. Than 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!
In the most menacing yet calm no nonsense voice I could muster I kindly 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.”
Meanwhile My phone was ringing, my superhero sidekick quailman was face timing me so he could not possibly deny the allegations. I swiftly thanked him and left.
Superhero? Maybe? Or HELL YEA!! I’ve got the speed the jumps, the power, the body, the seduction, the sex appeal, the strength, the leadership and yet the calm to weather the storm.
Always listen to your superhero inner voice. Always keep your things close! Fight for what’s right. Stand for what you believe in! Be a superhero!
When I got back into the restaurant I received a standing ovation. I was proud. I just showed every man in there I can stand up to bully’s and other men. It was a win for the ladies!
Just because you are a lady don’t be afraid to step up to any challenge and not be a victim but a hero!💪🏾. SuperSerena and her sidekick quailman 🤓

If you are a thief do you really want to risk having Serena chase you down and potentially beat you to a pulp?

Go Serena! Glad she wasn’t hurt though – you never know what crazy things people might do when cornered.


SG1 Says:

Messed with the wrong woman didn’t he? The thief must have been shocked seeing Serena come at him with near world class sprinter speed. Good thing this guy didn’t pull a knife or a gun though.


RZ Says:

I remember years ago reading about how a pickpocket in a Spanish airport stole something and was chased down by a member of the US track team. Turns out it was one of the sprinters who was there for the athletics world championships.


Chrisford1 Says:

Sometimes you have to accept that there is a risk to confronting a criminal, but the odds of being harmed or killed is very low. Odds like being in a crowd full of people means it is far less likely that the crook will turn on you.
Crooks count on people being passive and not engaging or fighting back. Glad Serena is not one of the sheep.
If you just let all crime go, and say it is only for the police, then you file a stolen property report and that is the end of it as far as most cops in most cities operate.
