- A robber made a grave mistake when after he tried to steal Sabrina Leite's phone
- She immediately realised he was unarmed so she immobilised him with her jiu-jitsu moves
- The entire incident was caught on video by an onlooker in the Jorge Teixeira neighbourhood of Manaus
A video has made its way on social media which showed a 22-year-old woman showing a thief who is boss.
More often than not thugs think woman are easy and weak targets to rob. However, a robber found out the hard way that Sabrina Leite is no ordinary woman.
According to News24, Leite saw two men on a motorbike approaching her. One of them got off and demanded that she give him her phone.
The 22-year-old said she sensed the men were unarmed, because if she thought they were armed she would never have acted as she did.
Briefly.co.za gathered she threw her phone into her home and it spooked the man, who attempted to flee on the bike.
She said her neighbour stopped the man with his car, which gave her the opportunity to get hold of him.
"Then I ran and immobilised him with a sleeper hold, I lay on the ground and put him in an arm lock,” she recalled.
The woman said she learnt the move through practising jiu-jitsu, which she had been training for the past four years.
The video shows the man screaming while she intensifying the grip. Take a look at the video below:
