Target of bag-snatching kicks suspects to kerb

Chasing down a motorbike on foot might be difficult, but that need not be a problem if you send the driver’s face into the gravel before he can get away.

When two robbers on a moto made the mistake on Tuesday of targeting a high school student with a low tolerance for being pushed around, they paid the price.
