A citizen's arrest in Hat Yai in Southern Thailand led to the quick capture of a man who snatched a South African woman's bag. 

 

The lady is in Thailand awaiting permission to start teaching at a private school. 

 

In custody is Nihafis Chearsae, 25, who had grabbed her bag containing Thai and foreign currency, a passport and other documents. 

 

The suspect faces 1 - 7 years in jail and the possibility of large fines said ONB News. 

 

Khor Hong police and the local tourist police are working on the case. 

 

The victim was not named but was pictured distressed by the incident.

Coming from where she does you think she would be a lot more streetwise;

I think your right....I must remember in future not to leave my helmet on my motorbike, not leave anything in the back of my pick-up...not leave any flowers in my front garden...and...bolt everything down that can be moved...

   By the way...I come from Europe?

Glad she is well and the culprit has been apprehended. However on looking at her I have to wonder what the South African lady is waiting to teach ? boxing perhaps 😂
