How do you say "Stop, Thief!" in the form of a question?

Jeopardy! host injured after chasing burglar in San Francisco

“Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek says he snapped his Achilles tendon while running after a burglar who had stolen cash, a bracelet and other items from his San Francisco hotel room.

The 71-year-old Trebek tells KGO-TV that he also injured his other leg while falling down during the chase early Wednesday. He was on crutches later Wednesday when he hosted the National Geographic World Championship at Google headquarters in Mountain View.

San Francisco police Lt. Troy Dangerfield says 56-year-old old Lucinda Moyers was arrested on suspicion of felony burglary and receiving stolen property.

It cannot be determined from the news report if she yelled while being chased ""Then the day is mine!"".

I should note that stealing from 71-year-old cultural icon Alex Trebek is absolutely disgraceful and unacceptable.

I'd suggest that as a fitting punishment, she be strapped to a chair with electrodes attached every time Jeopardy! is on TV for a year. Each time a contestant fails to correctly answer a question she gets a painful electric shock and a double shock every time Trebek says "wrong answer".
