CHENNAI: Usually, victims of snatching incidents are too shocked to react, and by the time they regain composure, the accused more often than not escapes. But, on Friday evening, two quick-thinking college girls chased and nabbed a phonesnatcher who attempted to flee with a mobile phone.

His accomplice G Surya (25) of GKM Colony surrendered.
