MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Nearly two million people have watched a video showing a confrontation in a clothing store in Frayser.

In Rainbow on Frayser Boulevard on Sunday, shoppers said they saw a woman try to steal from another shopper.

The potential victim noticed what was happening and confronted the suspected thief. That's when other shoppers turned on their phones and started recording.

Indria McNeal is seen in the video wearing a white shirt and holding on to the woman's purse as she tried to leave the building. 

Mom: "Oh baby, you ain't going no where"
By stander: "If you got her money, just give it to her"

McNeal said she came into Rainbow clothing store in Frayser to buy jeans for her daughter and herself. She tried on the pants in the dressing room and left her wallet on the table, and she returned later to get it.

"When I went in there, the billfold was in there," McNeal said. "And then I noticed the money was gone."

Customers thought it was only $400.

"$400, she took $400."

However, McNeal said it was more.

"No, it was actually $606."

However, it's not her determination to get her money back that many are commending her on. It's her choice to not fight the woman who took her hard-earned cash that many people admired.

"It was no reason to fight or whatever, and I knew I was going to get it back without the fighting or any violence involved in it or vandalism of the store," McNeal said.

Memphis police did not take a police report. McNeal said she does not plan to press charges. 

They remind the public that this was a fortunate outcome, but never risk your own safety to get back material items.
