Thief gets his foot stuck in door, waits for rescue and arrest (Video)

A THIEF who attempted to rob a store in Putian in the Chinese province of Fujian got his leg caught under the shop's automatic shutter.

He tried to get into the store as the shutter was coming down after a motorcyclist had exited it in the wee morning of Monday.

Surveillance footage from around 4am shows the door starting to close as the thief rushes to get inside.

The door came down on his leg, trapping him. He tried to struggle free but gave up after a few minutes. He laid on the floor and waited for the authorities to free him and arrest him.
