(Scroll down for video) A group of thugs of the United Kingdom, were caught on camera attempting to rob people by placing two bicycles in middle of the road.
Motorcyclist Daniel James MacArthur of England, recorded the shocking moment one of the thugs tried to steal his motorcycle after stopping to remove a bike that they planted on the road.
The motorcyclist captured the footage with his helmet camera. He said that he spotted a bicycle on the road and he thought that it fell from a passing car.
The footage shows MacArthur, pulling over to the side of a three-lane road in Newcastle. MacArthur said that he was concerned that the bike can cause a serious accident so he decided to move it.
However, as soon as he got off the motorbike and walked towards the bike on the road, one of the thieves tried to steal the motorbike.
MacArthur pushed the bicycle to the side of the road and ran back to his motorcycle, and took it back from the thief.
The thieves also planted a bike on the oncoming lane of traffic. MacArthur, stopped recording and called police.
MacArthur uploaded the video to Facebook with the caption: “I was only trying to do someone a favor.”
