The Story Some time ago, A man approached me on the street and asked to use my smartphone. I made suggestions to first go indoors somewhere but he kept insisting. For some reason I relented and just gave him my phone. Then while pretending to make a call, he slowly started moving to a nearby forest. I followed him there. Just before he entered the forest, I asked for my phone back. He kept moving saying things like his friend is waiting there. When he entered the forest, I repeatedly demanded my phone back, he refused. After several attempt at talk, I gave up and left. I did not want to fight. This was mainly due to my naive nature and helpful character.
The Question How do I effectively snatch back my phone from the hands of a thief? And if possible, can you provide a link to a video on how to do it?
