Bikini-clad Mikaela Kellner—an off-duty Swedish police officer—was sunbathing at Rålambshov Park with three of her friends in Stockholm, Sweden last Wednesday, July 27.
At some point, the group was approached by a man selling newspapers. However, after he left, one of Kellner's friends noticed that her phone was missing.
Kellner and another off-duty policewoman friend chased the man, which ended with the former pinning him to the ground. Sure enough, he had her friend's phone.
Somebody managed to take a photo of Kellner's heroic capture, which she then posted on her Instagram page. In the photo caption, Kellner wrote, "My first intervention while wearing a bikini during my 11 years as a police officer."
It's plain to see why the photo went viral.
The Washington Times quoted Kellner as saying, "I just acted on instinct and didn't think about it so much until after we had pinned him down. When I sat there, I looked over at our other two friends who are not police officers and realized that it probably looked pretty funny. But I would have stepped in no matter my outfit."
Then again, nobody's complaining about this particular bikini shot.
Kellner, by the way, is a powerlifter and a former contestant on Ninja Warrior Sweden. That thief didn't know what hit him.
