Brittle Star Attacked my CBS

I looked over and saw my CBS molting, then all of a sudden the Brittle Star started attacking the shrimp. It was actually grabbing the shrimp and pulling it towards it. Grabbed the digital camera but didn't had any space..Sigh Has anyone heard of this happening? This is the first time I've ever seen this occur.

Brittle stars are opportunists and all shrimp are fair game after a molt. Everything in the tank is a threat while it's vulnerable, not just the starfish. Were you able to intervene and is your shrimp ok?

The shrimp managed to pull away from the starfish.
