A robbery victim was reunited with her rare knife, after confronting the man who stole it in a grocery store.

The woman had arrived home to her apartment in the southern Swedish town of Sävsjö at about four o'clock on Thursday afternoon just in time to catch a glimpse of the thief.

A few hours later she saw a man in a grocery store who she suspected was the robber.

She then confronted the man and asked him to return what he'd taken, whereupon the 46-year-old man obliged, giving back the rare knife he'd stolen.

The women then followed the man home and informed the police, who arrested the man, according to TV4 in Jönköping.
