(Scroll down for video) A would-be car thief abandoned a running car after its owner jumped through the window.
Police released surveillance video of the incident, which shows a driver making a “ninja jump” through the window of his moving vehicle.
The video was taken at a gas station in Darwin, Australia. The video shows the owner walking away from his running car to pay for gas.
As he was walking away, a person got into the car and started to drive. The owner realized what was happening and ran back to the car. He threw himself feet first through the passenger side window.
He failed in his first attempt, but tried again and succeeded. The startled car thief jumped out while the car was still in motion, and ran away.
Police said that they are looking to talk to 24-year-old Timothy Slater, who they believe is responsible for the failed car theft.
Slater is wanted for a series of alleged crimes, including aggravated assault, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and theft.
