Did you read the first comment...?

"What I don't understand is why the fella didn't just stop, turn around and hit her? He'd already assaulted someone else so it wasn't like he wasn't willing."

Yes, a practical solution from "Dave in Liverpool". I'd be interested to hear his views on other issues of the day. Is there a role for him at the UN?

It IS, in its own twisted way, a fair point...

And terrible journalsim from the Mail.... they don't even say what make of trainers she was wearing.

*Hops over to Gear Forum to start "Best all terrain shoe to chase mugger?" thread*

Even more impressive is that she ran him down after just completing a Bob Graham round by the sounds of it!

Terrible journalism is tautologous in the case of the mail

Old fashioned values Peter..........The friend he had attacked was male..............she was a lady..............good boys never hit a lady

But he only lasted 5 or 6 minutes.  That's hardly an impressive run, even for an average runner.

They should make the mugger do the Bob Graham Round as his punishment; got to be worse than a prison sentence.

Hail Hail

In the pic she's wearing Inov8 x-talon 212s.

Shoe geek?  Moi?

Now, about the heel-striking....

I did say it was twisted, Seren... I'm avidly against violence, except in the case of cyclists on pavements.

Without the aid of photographic evidence, I will identify the mugger's footware as Nike Air Max.

Great story - good on her - bet  he felt like a right tw*t!

There was a similar story a couple of years ago - a woman in her sixties had her handbag stolen by a teenage girl.

She chased, and caught, the girl - she'd been quite a high-level sprinter in her younger years

Ms White added: 'I just grabbed my running shoes and training top. It was the natural thing to do"

Running shoes, yes.  Training top?  Did she also wait for her garmin to find satellites before setting off?
