RUSSIA (CBS46) -

Is this video staged or real?

It looks as if a phone thief thought he had picked an easy prey.

On the video, a thief spotted a woman texting and thought he could snatch the phone without a struggle.

The video was taken at an underground subway in Russia.

By the looks of the video, he probably regretted his decision immediately.

Watch as the woman fights off the man and gets her phone back.

Do you think the video is real? The video has more than 603,079 views on YouTube. Many comments say the video is fake, but entertaining.
