Lara Croft lives in the Burgh, and she’s Russian!

I picture this woman as being tall, thin, dressed in black and extremely hot. It just makes the article all the more exciting. Guys? She was in heels, gave chase, and jumped on the hood of a moving car. She JUMPED ON THE HOOD OF THE CAR!

Marina Ryjakova … had driven to the bank on July 14, 2004 and was in heels about to make a deposit when she heard footsteps running behind her. Before she could turn, she testified this week at trial, a big, husky black male snatched the bag and fled.

Ms. Ryjakova, who had been a member of a Russian judo team before moving here, gave chase. As they ran through a parking lot, she said she called police on her cell phone to report the robbery. She said Mr. Tucker … climbed into a waiting vehicle.

As the driver … tried to pull away, Ms. Ryjakova jumped onto the hood of the car.

The driver did not stop and she was flung to the ground.

That, my Burghers, is awesomely fearless and cool. If only she had caught up with him and beat the crap out of him judo-style.

    I keep thinking of the Flintstones episode where Wilma takes karate lessons… “Judo Chop!”

    Mind you judo is pretty good stuff. I studied tae kwon do for a few years and I’m pretty sure a decent judo person could kick my ass…

    And don’t you find women that can run you down in heels AND kick your ass to be pretty hot? Imagine she’s wearing a skirt and glasses too. Enjoy your fantasy.
