Would-be moto thief gets fistic welcome

An aspiring thief got a fistful of justice yesterday when he tried to jack a motorbike while its owner was enjoying lunch.

The sneaky crook crept up to the parked moto, hoping to wheel it away while his victim was upstairs.

Luckily, the hungry owner’s neighbour observed the burglar, raising the alarm and his fists.

The vigilant vigilantes stopped the thief, returned the motorbike and delivered the suspect to local police after giving him a sound thrashing.
