A video shows a 4’9 “female MMA practitioner slapping a bleeding man to the ground after allegedly stealing her brand new smartphone.
Brisa was in Buenos Aires, Argentina’s capital, when the man reportedly swiped her phone and tried to run, relying on her chase.
With the help of a friend, 20-year-old Brisa chased the suspected thief and yelled at bystanders to stop him.
A group of workers managed to grab the fleeing man and Brisa was able to get her phone back and take him.
In the clip, the MMA fighter holds the man in a headlock on the ground and pulls his hair as blood runs down his face.
She screams in his ear, “Son of a ***, get a job!
“Do you think I’m locked up at work all day so you can steal from me in three seconds?”
Brisa did not release the suspect until police arrived and handcuffed him, according to local media.
The investigation is ongoing.
Brisa later explained that she was “hated” because she had been saving for months to buy the new smartphone.
In an interview on the TV show Nosotros a La Manana, Brisa admitted that she spent a good chunk of her pay on the flashy phone.
She said, “I worked all day during a reduced salary pandemic and I refused to accept that this man came by and made more than half my wages in three seconds.
“Hopefully this man will never steal again.
“I was lucky because I know how to defend myself while practicing MMA, but I don’t want it to happen to anyone else.”
The woman added, “I am proud of how I have acted and I do not regret anything.”
This comes after a famous dancer and Instagram influencer was detained by an ‘obsessed fan’ in a dance academy in Buenos Aires – resulting in a confrontation with armed police.
