MATT LUCAS TARGETED BY THIEVING OLD LADY

Friday, February 15, 2013 - British funnyman Matt Lucas pinned an old woman to a wall and ordered her to hand over his phone and cash after she stole from him in a bar.

The Little Britain star was enjoying a drink with friends at a venue in London when an elderly flower seller approached and asked him for money.

The obliging comedian generously handed over a British =C2£5 note, but was left fuming when he realised the woman had stolen his cell phone while distracting him.

Lucas tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "I was in a pub with a friend and an old lady came in selling flowers. She was like a Dickensian impoverished flower seller and wouldn't go away so I gave her a fiver. She then

started kissing my hands and thanking me.

"When she left I realised my phone wasn't there so I ran out of the pub, saw the woman, shoved her against the wall and demanded my phone and the money back. She eventually gave them to me but as I ran away through a crowd of people that had gathered, I realised all they saw was me mugging an old lady for a mobile phone and some cash!"
