Woman traps thief in back seat of car

BERLIN (Reuters) - A 54-year-old woman in Germany shocked a would-be thief into submission when she ran screaming and trapped the man in her car after seeing him rummaging around in search of plunder, police said Sunday.

The woman had just unloaded a refrigerator from her car when she saw a man had opened the door and was kneeling on the back seat, a spokeswoman for police in the western city of Bonn said.

“It’s not like she was some kind of Arnold Schwarzenegger,” the spokeswoman said. “She ran up screaming, pushed the man in and held him there. He was so impressed he didn’t even try to escape. He just swapped her back seat for one of ours.”
