Man steals smartphone, gets hit by bus, suffers only minor injuries and is arrested
He flips a lever which opens the doors to the station platform before the bus arrives, the idea being that the open doors will assist in his rapid escape after snatching the device from his would-be victim’s hands. Had his victim not resisted, his plan might have worked.
Those few seconds she held on to her device made the difference. Once he wrested the phone from her hands, he lunged for his get-away, only it was too late and just as he was about to leap off the platform, the incoming bus takes him down for the count.
Amazingly, he suffered only minor injuries and was ultimately arrested, along with some accomplices shortly thereafter. Perhaps it is no surprise that thief has a history of this type of behavior. The lady got her phone back. For those that are wondering, the date on the camera was not properly programmed, this incident took place earlier this month.

Nah. If I could own a Vertu, I could probably own a chopper, a yatch, and car and driver too.

Not really, i'm from Colombia, and most of the people over there still use BlackBerry devices, the curve 8520, or low entry android phones, like the Galaxy Ace. But who knows, maybe is an iPhone 4S-5 or Galaxy S2-3.

Dark Droiddoes purely hates Apple, it's users, fans, and the consumers who use and likes, or buys any Apple products. I use to terrorize, take the piss, say baaaaaaaa, or i$h€€p
I was like Droiddoes a year ago, purely, deeply hated anyone, everyone that use to use, or like Apple products, but I've cooled down!
54. darkkjedii (Posts: 14455; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
I just wonder Troll... Why hate on the user? What the company does is one thing, but the user is just texting calling emailing, or whatever. Droiddoes hates me cuz he can't get to me, and he knows it. He has given me every insult he possibly can without getting banned, and I can imagine what he'd love to say but he knows better. He can hate all he wants it means nothing Troll. +1

34. apple4never (Posts: 1026; Member since: 08 May 2013)
why, doubt youve never done anything bad, but u dont deserve to die, i dont think so
44. tedkord (Posts: 6508; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
I've never mugged anyone, robbed anyone, attacked anyone. Have I ever done anything wrong? Sure. But never anything that hurt anyone. People like this guy can't die soon enough.
56. darkkjedii (Posts: 14455; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
You have to wonder what else he's done to people. Also does he only target women...if so bury him ASAP. I can't stand men who target women for any bad purpose.

A phone is not worth a life. Being arrested is enough.
25. muhsen (Posts: 275; Member since: 07 Jun 2012)

It shocks me how no one reacted.. Meanwhile in my country (Argentina), this is what we do when someone robs someone (The car rams him over, the people start beating him up)
I'm so proud :')

Yep, pathetic idiot has to steal phones like stealing wallets in a since, most of everyone keeps some personal info on their phones nowadays... he had that comming! Karma!! Justice served better by bus than a slap on the wrist by law.
61. chemhaz (Posts: 160; Member since: 04 May 2012)
The guys he was talking to before he struck did'nt seem to rush to his aid.
Lesson to be learnt here kids, if you hang out with dead S#i+s, when something goes wrong, they will leave you for dead.
62. mariosraptor (Posts: 111; Member since: 15 Mar 2012)
