You might want to rethink your strategy if you plan on stealing iPhones. That's some especially sound advice if you plan on swiping phones in Lincoln Park, home to sushi hot spot Juno.
It's owned by longtime restaurateur Jason Chan—who also happens to be a personal trainer and trained martial artist. He's also now apparently a superhero as he stopped a suspect who attempted to steal a phone from one of his diners Thursday night.

Chan's response on his quick thinking?! He posted this to Facebook as he reported the crime at the Chicago Police Department (19th District):
"Never regret helping a good person who was wronged by a bad person. I'm proud of my good deed."
Good on you, Jason. And also congrats for snapping up a Michelin Guide 2014 Bib Gourmand for Juno!
