A motorist driving behind the opportunist thieves just so happened to be recording when the black Hyundai suddenly stopped, and activated his hazard lights.
In a matter of seconds, the hooded and masked passenger jumped out, smashed the rear window of a parked car and unloaded all the valuables he had somehow spotted in the back.

But unbeknownst to him, the apparent owner of the car is standing right across the street, and realizes what is going on. He sprints at the thief's car and makes a running leap onto the hood — right as the car makes its swift getaway.
The victim rolls over the roof and takes a nasty spill onto the road, smashing his head; luckily he gets up and walks it off, still clutching the back of his skull.
