Chilling video shows woman attacking would-be thief


A woman shares her story when a thief tried to run away with her ill-gotten gains and failed.

Ontario resident Olivia Christina Hernandez shared a video Thursday on her TikTok and Instagram accounts of the incident. She says she was trying to sell an iPhone 13, but when the man she thought was going to buy the phone tried to steal it instead, she was able to tackle him and get the device back.

The video, filmed from a Ring security camera, shows Hernandez waving to the potential buyer and inviting him inside. After about a minute, the door slams open and the thief runs away. Hernandez is in hot pursuit, however, and can be seen tackling him at the end of the clip.

As for what happened the minute no one was on screen in the video, she says, “He kicked me down the stairs. Kick me twice in the face. I hit him seven times after he tackles the house and he gives up. I feel like his last.”

“If you look like this but a 5’7″ woman beats you for assaulting her trying to run off for an iphone13, stay home cause I’ll be embarrassed too,” Hernandez wrote on Instagram. “juvi and mma made me feel good.” In another comment, she said she has been training in MMA, jiu jitsu and kickboxing for four years.

In a lengthy clip posted to TikTok, after the tackle, the man picks up Hernandez and tries to carry her to his car. She starts screaming for help in the video. She ended up running away, though it’s not shown in the clip.

“There’s nothing to be ashamed of,” she wrote in the caption of the longer video, “if you need help, yell as loud as you can.”

In a later video, she shows the bruises and scratches she suffered, along with the recovered iPhone, still in its box. Hernandez was not seriously injured and appeared in another video dancing with a butterfly wing filter.

“For everyone to ask me how I feel after all that happened…like this,” she wrote.

While Hernandez was able to defend herself against her attacker and recover her stolen phone, most experts recommend staying calm and complying with the thief. The Washington, DC Metropolitan Police recommend self-defense more as a preventative measure than an offensive one. Police also say more people respond to a shout of “Fire!” rather than “Help!”

However, if a robbery should turn into an assault, as in the case of Hernandez, the best thing to do is to do what she did and try everything to get away from the attacker, according to the resource. legal information HG.com.

Hernandez was praised in the comments for fighting back and getting her phone back.

“I’m so proud of you! and hope you’re doing well. People like this don’t expect pretty young women to stand up for themselves,” @gracezebrasky wrote.

“I’m proud of you girl, you can tell you’re really nice and people tried to take advantage of that. Hope you beat her ass, you got my following,” @said indianamaljay.
