Video has surfaced showing a young man stealing a mobile phone from a woman whilst on the train in Hungary.
The footage, which is believed to have been from 2012, shows the man standing next to a woman as she sits on the train playing with her phone.
The man can be seen casually looking around the train carriage whilst keeping a subtle eye one the woman’s phone.
As the train pulls to a stop, the man, standing near the carriage doors, remains still, even after they open.
At the last second, the cunning thief pinches the phone from the unsuspecting woman’s hands and slides through the closing doors. The helpless woman screams after the thief through the carriage window.
Thankfully, with the help of the police and the video footage, the man was captured within 24 hours.
