A not-very-smooth criminal had his robbery bid foiled by... a door, of all things. Early on Monday morning, in China's Putian city, a thief attempted to rob a store. However, just as he tried to rush in, the door shut on his foot, trapping him there, reports the Shanghaiist. The incident took place at around 4 am, and the helpless would-be-thief had to wait till morning for the police to come and rescue him. In the video, he can be seen frantically trying to free himself for a few minutes before giving up and lying down.
