(Scroll down for video) A thief messed up badly after running straight for the upcoming bus.
The Colombian thief was hurt when he tried running from the crime scene.
The thief forgot to look both ways before crossing the street and he ran directly in front of a bus after robbing a woman of her mobile phone. It was all caught on camera. The man tried to grab a woman’s cellular phone at a bus stop in Bogota. The woman would not let go of her phone. They had a little struggle, but then the thief managed to grab the phone and ran.
After grabbing the phone from the woman the thief ran out of the glass door and ran headfirst into an approaching bus at a bus station in Bogota. When he tried to make a run for it he was hit by an oncoming bus who had come to pick up passengers at that bus stop.
Onlookers were horrified as the man was thrown into the air before falling between the bus and the glass doors. While he was lying on the floor, the victim grabbed her phone back. Then she graciously helped the man get up. Onlookers called an ambulance who transported him to the hospital where he was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries.
“Wow, he is lucky that he wasn’t killed by the bus. Hopefully, he learned his lesson and will turn his life around,” Tyrone Jones, 51, of Cheyenne, Wyoming told YourJewishNews.com after watching the video.
Police said the mugger had a history of theft related charges. He was arrested after being treated at the hospital.
