Mikaela Kellner Arrest
Mikaela Kellner was sunbathing in a park in Stockholm when her friend’s mobile phone went missing. She realized that a man who had just passed by pretending to sell newspapers was the most likely suspect.
She chased him and tackled him. As she did so a photo of her was taken and she posted it on Instagram.
So far the photo has received over 15,000 likes.
In an interview with a website Kellner said she “acted on instinct and didn’t think about it so much until after we had pinned him down.”
She added: “When I sat there I looked over at our other two friends who are not police officers and realised that it probably looked pretty funny. But I would have stepped in no matter my outfit.”
Kellner is also a CrossFit athlete and was a former contestant on Swedish Ninja Warrior.
