Pregnant Russian women forces thief who stole her handbag to the ground until police arrives

Russians are all known for their firey fighting spirit, and apparently, even pregnant mothers aren't excluded. 

A thief who stole from a seemingly helpless pregnant woman in Kirov, Kaluga Oblast in Western Russia, paid dearly for his assault, not only through the law, but also by his pride - and probably his ribs.

Not only did the mother-to-be, who the robber stole from, catch up to the thief, she also tackled him to the ground, face down. Footage shows the man being held down by the sheer weight of the pregnant mother, as he struggled even to breathe.

This curious incident started when a drunken man suddenly lunged towards the short-haired pregnant woman, snatching away her handbag and running away like a coward. However, the woman wasn't fazed in the least and immediately started chasing after the man, ultimately bringing him down to the ground.

As one can see from the video, it was the burglar who was absolutely helpless, instead of the other way round (as he might've anticipated). There was truly nothing he could do except writhing around his face and getting streaks of mud everywhere. The woman, whilst restraining him into the mud, exclaimed: "Eat mud, you filthy thief! The money [in this bag] is earnt through my blood and sweat, and is used to feed my family!"

Passersby, disapproving of the mugger's behaviour, poured water onto the drunkard's face, and the person filming the ordeal gave him the middle finger. Finally, the police arrived and wrangled the mud-caked man into the police car.
