Video Of The Week sent to The Sussex Newspaper by H. Moore from Crawley. A Colombian thief botched his getaway by running into the path of a bus after stealing a woman's mobile phone at a station.
The would-be robber was hit by the moving bus and fell between the vehicle and the glass doors of an exit at the station in Bogota, Colombia. He received medical attention and was treated for minor injuries.
His victim recovered her phone and helped him out from under the bus. The mugging took place earlier this month and was caught on CCTV which was programmed with the wrong date. According to police, the mugger had a history of theft and was prosecuted after leaving hospital. His accomplices were also captured just hours after the episode.
