Serena Williams was captured on surveillance camera chasing and catching up to an unidentified man who snatched her cell phone at a San Francisco restaurant on November 4.

The Tennis champion shared the story on Facebook on Wednesday saying she was out to dine with a friend when a man came over and stood silently next to her at the table.

In the video, which has since gone viral, Williams was seen dining with a male friend who appeared to be Reddit founder Alexis Ohanion -before she suddenly turned vigilante sprung into action after the man snatched her phone.

"Not thinking I reacted. (hence the superwoman photo) I jumped up, weaved my way in and out of the cozy restaurant (leaping over a chair or two) and chased him down," wrote Williams on Facebook Wednesday. "He began to run but I was too fast. (Those sprints came in handy) I was upon him in a flash!" She continued.

And despite being the victim, Williams tried to give the idiot thief the benefit of the doubt. "I kindly asked him if he "accidentally" took the wrong phone," said Williams.

"He stumbled on his words probably not expecting this to happen. While he was thinking of the right thing to say and eventually he said "Gosh you know what I did! It was so confusing in there. I must have grabbed the wrong phone."'

Williams, 34, said she then thanked the man, took her phone and returned to her dinner. Watch the video below:
