THIS pickpocket got more than he bargained for – after trying to nick a bikini-clad copper’s mobile phone, The Sun reports. Hilarious images show policewoman and bodybuilder Mikaela Kellner grappling with the alleged thief in the middle of a park.
And there can be no dispute about who came out on top, with the muscle-bound cop holding the man in an arm lock all while wearing a tiny bikini. The incident took place in Ralambshovsparken in Swedish capital Stockholm.
Posted to photo-sharing app Instagram, the picture has been liked more than 6,000 times. Describing the dramatic episode, one witness said the man had approached him and Mikaela, placing a newspaper over their mobile phones which were nestled on a blanket.
The cunning thief then allegedly picked up one of the sunbathers’ phones and made off. But he was only able to make it a matter of yards before Mikaela and her fellow policewoman pal realised something was awry. Chasing the man, they slammed him to the floor and put him in a painful arm-lock before police arrived to arrest him.
Mikaela saw the funny side of the incident. She said: “It was kind of funny that I had a bikini on me when I had to intervene. It was all a bit comical.” Commenting on her impressive technique, one commented: “So damn wonderful, perhaps time the police take up posts wearing bikinis.”
While another added: “Good job, glorious courage.”
