The alleged thief, identified by authorities as a 37-year-old man with the initials K.Y., reportedly grabbed the mobile phone that Alia had just placed in her pocket and then sped away on his motorcycle.
Refusing to be a victim, Alia hopped on her motorcycle and gave chase to her phone thief. After eventually catching up with him, Alia crashed her vehicle into K.Y.’s motorcycle in front of a housing complex, causing him to fall off his bike.
K.Y., who was later revealed to be a convicted criminal who had been caught stealing multiple times in the past, was apprehended with the help of local residents who prevented him from getting away.
A video of the incident shared by Instagram account @pontianakmedia showed the defiant Alia with a bloodied nose and mouth examining her reacquired phone.
According to West Kalimantan Police, K.Y. will likely be imprisoned for several months for his actions.
