Nabiktima ng snatcher si Senator Pia Cayetano habang nasa Madrid, Spain, nitong Linggo, April 26.
Nasa Spain ang senadora para lumahok sa isang marathon.
Ayon sa post ng senadora kahapon, Lunes, April 27, habang naglalakad siya sa isang pasilyo, isang lalaking nakabisikleta ang bigla na lamang humablot sa kanyang cellphone.
Hinabol daw niya ito at binato pa ng charger sa pag-asang bumaligtad ang bisikleta ng snatcher, pero hindi niya nakuha ang kanyang telepono.
Ang ginawa raw niya ay humingi siya ng saklolo, at maagap naman ang mga taong nasa kabilang kalye kaya nahuli ang magnanakaw.
Narito ang buong post ni Senator Cayetano:
“On a rainy Sunday morning, I was running the streets of Madrid, Spain as a participant in the Madrid Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon.
“In the afternoon, I found myself running again but for a different reason. As I was walking along an alley, glued to the Google maps on my phone, a bike swept past me as I saw a hand reach out and grab my phone!
"I ran after him but as he picked up speed on the bike, I threw my charger at him, hoping it would knock him out. But of course it didn't, so I started shouting for help.
“That proved to be more effective because these big guys across the street heard me and pulled him off his bike and pinned him to the ground.
"Police arrived in a few minutes and took me to the police station to file my report. Not one to let an opportunity pass, I practiced my Spanish on the police and gave my testimony in Spanish.
“I think I'll take a break from running tomorrow. Lesson learned: Always be on guard wherever you are.”
