RACINE -- It was minutes before closing when a woman tried to steal from a Racine cell phone store. She reached over the counter to take two iPhones, but she didn't make it far.
Kim Rebac has worked in customer service for nearly half her life, but the Racine Boost Mobile worker had never faced what happened on Monday night.
"You do learn stuff along the way," says Rebac. "I've never had someone rob me or attempt to before. It was shocking, how quick it happened.
Just before the store closed on Jan. 13, the suspect snatched the two phones and dashed toward the door. Even quicker than the suspect, though, was Rebac's boyfriend -- who jumped into action.
