Three refugees in Italy learned never to judge a book by it’s cover the hard way as they tried to steal her phone. They targeted a 16 year old girl, sizing her up as an easy target.
The attack occurred on the afternoon of Feb. 4 on the streets of Trescore Balneario, Italy, where three Moroccan migrants in their 20s surrounded the young lady and attempted to steal her phone, as reported by the Italian newspaper Il Giorno and translated by the Sputnik news agency.
What the three thugs did not know at the time was that their intended victim was a black belt in jiu-jitsu.
The moment one of the them attempted to slide his arm into her pocket to take her phone, the unnamed girl reportedly grabbed his arm and used her jiu-jitsu moves to immobilize him.
The thug’s shocked accomplices then fled the scene like cowards, leaving their peer at her mercy. Out of either kindness or a desire just to get the situation over with, however, she chose to release the would-be robber, who then chased after his peers.
The girl has since reported the incident to the authorities, who as of Wednesday were still searching for the suspects.
Maybe they should stick to stealing candy from a baby.
