Swedish policewoman in bikini capture phone thief
A bikini-clad Swedish police officer has been praised for tackling a suspected thief while she was off-duty sunbathing with friends in Stockholm.They should consider using policewomen in bikinis to deal with all the sexual assaults perpetrated by refugees in Sweden.
Mikaela Kellner told the Aftonbladet daily that she and a fellow officer pursued the man when they realised he had taken one of their mobile phones.
She told the paper that she would have intervened "even if she were naked".
A photo of the incident on Ms Kellner's Instagram page has attracted more than 9,000 likes in less than two days.
The incident is said to have taken place in Stockholm's Ralambshov Park on Wednesday, where the off-duty policewoman was sunbathing with friends.
The group was approached by a man who claimed to be selling publications on behalf of the homeless.
Ms Kellner reportedly became suspicious when the man began lingering, setting some papers down over their blanket.
As soon as he left, collecting his papers, one of her friends noticed that her phone was missing.
"There was no time, so I ran after him, maybe 15 metres or so," Ms Kellner toldSwedish news site, The Local.
"One of my friends is also a police officer, so we got hold of him. He tried to get away so we held onto him harder."
The stolen phone was swiftly recovered, and the man was arrested by a police patrol.
