"Wait here, Ma'am. I'll go get your wallet back."
With that, she went and followed the pace of her target.
The thief made a sprint across the deck and elbowed some bystanders to clear his way. She had to leap on a stroller and even ran on the wall to avoid crashing onto anyone. There were cries from those who were bumped into by the runaway man, but that did not divert her attention towards her prey.
Cassidy will just let the security guards and the medics do the job later on.
Getting a bit ahead of him, she then stunned him by landing on his front. He threw a punch in her direction, but she evaded it with ease. When he flung his other knuckle as revenge, she used his momentum to grab his wrist and collar before flipping him over and slamming his body to the ground.
