An incompetent thief received some instant karma when he was filmed screaming in agony after he allegedly broke his ankle during an attempted robbery.
In the video the hopeless robber is shown leaning on a railing clearly in severe pain, screaming ‘my ankle, my ankle!’ in between sobs.
The moronic mugger broke his ankle while jumping down off a fence to threaten his victim with a knife, the Daily Mail report.
The person filming the video then demands the unidentified thief throw over the knife he reportedly had in his possession.
The now weeping thief can be heard saying: ‘On my mother’s grave I threw it’. Meanwhile the man explains to another person, just out of the camera’s view, that the injured man tried to ‘rob’ him for his phone.
The unseen man then asks if he should call the police, as the thief begs for mercy repeating that his ankle is broken in the 38 second long video.
It’s unknown when or where the video was recorded, but since being uploaded to vid.me it’s been viewed more than 148,000 times.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
