(Scroll down for video) This man might just be the world’s dumbest thief.
Police in China, have released a video, showing the thief being arrested within seconds of robbing a woman.
The man was seen grabbing a smartphone out of a woman's hand in the street of Shenzhen, before making a quick getaway.
However, the foolish thief went directly to a police station.
Surveillance footage shows the thief sneaking behind the woman, grabbing her cell phone and then running across the street.
The woman ran after him, but she slipped and fell in the crosswalk. It then seemed as though the thief would be able to get away.
He ran into a nearby property and he looked for a place to hide. While he looked for a place to run or hide, the woman managed to catch up with him.
She immediately called out to an officer. She explained to the officer that the man stole her phone. She then took the phone out of the man’s hand.
The officer arrested the suspect. Authorities said that the thief who is not from the area, did not know that there was a police station so close to his crime scene when he accidentally ran towards the facility.
