The incident allegedly happened at Mataraman, in the Banjar district in South Kalimantan.

In the video, the woman in a blue shirt was seen to be beating the thief up whilst surrounded by people. Although the thief attempted to fight back, the woman managed to put him to the ground using a ‘smackdown’ wrestling technique.

Iptu said that the incident occurred at 1:00am on Sunday (10 April). “It was revealed that the man who was beaten was the thief who stole their mobile phone. But out of pity for the criminal, they did not want to report it to the police.”

At the moment, the local police are said to be looking for the criminal’s address. Later on, a statement declaring peace will be made by the two parties.
