I don’t want to seem like I’m condoning theft, but I kind of feel like if you’re able to steal a phone out of someone’s pocket while they’re cycling past you, with chopsticks, then you kind of deserve to have that phone.
A Henan man, surnamed Wang, gave himself up at a local police station after photos emerged of him robbing a cyclist in downtown Zhengzhou. Wang jogs just behind the cyclist as he picks her pocket with a pair of chopsticks. The cyclist was reportedly completely unaware that the theft was taking place.
After seeing himself in local media reports, Wang phoned a journalist and admitted that he was the “suit man” in the photos. He said he turned to crime as he is struggling to raise his 12 year old child by himself.
