Street justice for motorcycle handbag thieves

A pair of motorcycle-riding handbag thieves in China have been arrested after they were chased by a group of irate shoppers who saw them attack a woman.

The incident, which was caught on CCTV, happened in Wenzhou last week and started when the motorbike-riding crooks drove past a woman and grabbed the handbag she was carrying.

As the pair sped off down the road, the victim tried to run after them, and passers-by who had seen what happened they joined in.

Within seconds, dozens of shoppers and store-owners were following the bike which was forced to double back on himself.

At that point the men were pushed off the bike and attacked by the gang with whatever they had to hand… including one guy who threw a chest-of-drawers at him, really.
Police say the men have both needed hospital treatment and have now been arrested.
