Caught on camera: Pickpocket uses chopsticks to steal woman’s mobile phone

Now this is what you call a bad Chinese takeaway.

A pickpocket has been caught on camera stealing a woman’s mobile phone with chopsticks.

Wang Hongbo, 32, was captured on camera lifting the phone from a woman’s pocket as she cycled unaware through Zhengzhou in China’s Henan province.

He was snapped chasing the oblivious cyclist down a busy street before carefully extracting the handset using the specially adapted implements.

The thief was later seen examining his ill-gotten goods before selling the phone in a nearby second hand shop.

He was caught out when a passer-by, who photographed the whole incident unfolding, posted the pictures online.

Mr Hongbo eventually handed himself into the police after his picture was widely circulated on the internet and in print.
