A violent confrontation over a stolen iPhone caught on video.

A construction worker took the law into his own hands after his smartphone was stolen last month.

Using an app, he tracked down the device and came face to face with the thief, which spiraled into a heated brawl.

The cellphone owner pepper-sprayed the man and attempted to make a citizen’s arrest.

Then, an off-duty cop held the thief down until police arrived and took him away.
