A thief's get-away was halted when he ran into a glass door.
The man was making a dash from a shopping centre where he had seconds earlier snatched a woman's purse.
CCTV footage shows him making his escape - until he crashes into a glass door and ends up in a crumpled heap on the floor.
Bystanders helped the thief to his feet, unaware that he had just stolen the purse.
But an accomplice approached them and asked to leave the injured man alone.
The pair then made off in a stolen green Lexus.
