However, he was not so lucky as a person from a top building saw him and realizing that something was fishy, he rushed to shop and caught him red handed, said the resident, who also made a video of the robber after being caught.
By the time the owner also returned and then residents called in police and handed him over to them, said the resident, adding that nothing was stolen. He said this is not first incident in the locality.
