Burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese has taken to Twitter.com to hail an anonymous hero who recovered her stolen phone after it was snatched from her in France.
The model and ex-wife of rocker Marilyn Manson was perusing an outdoor market in Paris on Sunday (24Jun12) when a thief ripped her Apple iPhone right out of her hands.
However, a kind-hearted bystander jumped into action and raced after the perpetrator, returning Von Teese's prized possession several minutes later.
The grateful pin-up has now heaped praise upon the stranger with a post on her social networking page, declaring, "Just had my iPhone snatched out of my hand at the paris flea market, but got it back thanks to a dashing hero that chased the thief down!"
