Cyclists regularly get a bad rap when acting dangerously on the roads.
However, one cyclist suffered some instant karma which was justly deserved.
The young bike rider was seen stealing from a parked car before making his getaway.
Thankfully, he didn’t get too far.
He quickly swerves away as the policeman jumps out
The video shows the young man on a rented bicycle ransacking a parked car.
However as he makes off with the stolen goods, he comes face-to-face with a police van that spotted his thieving ways.
He quickly swerves away as the policeman jumps out.
Yet on his final escape, the policeman hits him off his bike with his car door and knocks him to the ground, stopping the robber in his tracks.
