    Police in Western Australia release CCTV vision of a bag snatcher who crashed through a window while trying to flee the scene of the crime, and who then eluded police.

    The man approached a woman in a newsagency at a shopping centre in Ballajura in Perth's north yesterday, and grabbed her purse.

    As he tried to run away, he crashed through a plate glass window next to a sliding door, shattering the glass. He suffered cuts and was knocked to the ground.

    He was initially helped to his feet by bystanders who were unaware of the robbery, before an accomplice approached them and told the bystanders to leave the injured man alone.
    The man was being temporarily restrained by a lone individual. Dazed and confused, the robber got to his feet and made his zig-zig way to a stolen getaway car.

    funny thing is, they probably put that plant there so people wouldn't walk into the glass :c

    If this happened here, he'd be suing the bank for having overly clean windows
