Quick-Thinking Pedestrian Outwits Robbers In A Car With Some Nifty Changes Of Direction

CCTV footage, captured in Brazil, shows a man walking down the street with a bag of shopping. A vehicle’s headlights shine bright as it approaches the pedestrian and slows to a halt beside the man. Realizing he is in danger, the man begins to race down the street away from the robbers.

But the driver of the car accelerates at speed and reverses backwards, chasing the man as he tries to escape. However, the man outwits the robbers and suddenly changes direction and runs quickly away before the car has time to catch up.

As the car tries to follow, the man changes direction again to confuse the driver and manages to run down a side street away from the robbers.
