George Herald - - News - K­ris­ty Kol­berg

A gi­rl from Ge­or­ge can thank her lucky s­tars af­ter an unkno­wn hero sa­ved her from a cel­lp­ho­ne thief last Thursday 27 Sep­tem­ber. Ci­ra Mey­er, a le­ar­ner at Ou­te­ni­qua High School, was wal­king ho­me from school s­hort­ly af­ter 14:00 w­hen a man grab­bed her pho­ne. A man who saw it hap­pe­ning, ga­ve cha­se.

"The man ma­na­ged to ca­tch the cel­lp­ho­ne thief, for­ced him to the ground and took back Ci­ra's pho­ne," said the gi­rl's mot­her, Ber­ni­ce. "Af­ter checking that Ci­ra was o­kay our hero of the day left. Un­for­tu­na­te­ly she didn't ta­ke his na­me or con­tact de­tails so we would lo­ve to thank him through the Ge­or­ge He­rald."

The sus­pect ma­na­ged to es­ca­pe the man's grasp w­hen he st­rug­gled for the pho­ne, ma­king off to­wards the b­rid­ge in the di­recti­on of Van Ker­vel School.
