This is the moment a wealthy man spots two bikers about to mug him and quickly gets into his flash car and knocks into one of them, causing him to skid down the asphalt road on his belly.
The incident took place in the upmarket neighbourhood of Los Cristales in the western Colombian city of Cali – notorious for its high crime rate – on the morning of Monday, 2nd August.
CCTV footage shows the moment two motorcyclists turn up on the wealthy man’s driveway – apparently to rob him.
However, the quick-witted man gets into his high-end car and immediately starts pursuing one of the men.
He is seen bumping into the biker from behind with his vehicle, causing the biker to fall off his motorbike and skid down the asphalt road on his belly. The driver then continues down the road.
The would-be mugger is then seen getting up – apparently without injuries – and he gets back onto his motorbike and he and his alleged accomplice ride away.
The whole incident unfolded in little under a minute.
Footage of the incident was posted on social media, where it has since racked up over 96,000 views.
Instagram user Juan Bedoya was critical of the man’s actions, commenting: “Now they’re calling people who run over and take advantage of the neediest ‘good people’.”
Instagram user Daniel Munoz Frisneda, captured the attitude of most, however, with his comment: “Well done.”
Cali security secretary Carlos Javier Soler revealed on Sunday, 1st August that homicide figures were down in the city last month.
He said: “Now, the next task is to work on burglary and vehicle theft.”
