Purse Snatchers Foiled by Guy with Bike.
But probably not in the way you are thinking.

I guess that's one way to do it.

Awesome! Hopefully someone who speaks Chinese can clear up the dialogue (either that, or is there more to the story posted elsewhere?).

I didn't understand a word she said.

The news narration is a description of the event with praise for the cyclist. The only additional details not obvious from the footage are that the time is just after 6am; the man in the black trench coat who approaches the robbers near the end of the video is a hotel security guard; the would be robbers were apprehended; the cyclist rode off afterwards and they don't know who he is. Throughout the segment he is refered to as "the man".

notice how he casually walks up to them after they

I was impressed with the speed with which he reacts, it seems he stops and gets off the bike as soon as he sees the snatch take place. Thats an assumption , but reasonable. I've thought of doing something similar, but i might hesitate at throwing several hundred dollars at someone, unlike the $40 his bike probably cost.

Even so, if the incident involves violence, I'm aiming for the throat!
