The surveillance camera system of a housing complex in Mexico City captured the frightening moment a thief placed a teenage girl in a choke hold and stole her phone.
The girl, who was not identified by authorities, was on her way home from school Monday night approximately at 9pm when a male suspect attacked her from behind.
The CCTV camera shows the victim walking up a short flight of stairs outside the apartment building located in Tlatelolco, a neighborhood in the borough of Cuauhtémoc.
The teen can be seen reading her cellphone and appears to be responding to message.
The attacker slowly walks up to her and immediately lifts her off the ground the moment he started to choke her out.
He then dropped her to the ground and removed the cellphone from her hand.
He then took off running and is briefly chased by a Good Samaritan who had stepped out the building entrance.
The girl slowly comes to her senses and starts to get back up from the ground before her neighbors came to her aid and walk her inside the building.
Authorities have not reported any arrests.
