This is the moment a police officer in Birmingham caught a suspect on the bike he abandoned.

A suspect who sprinted at the sight of a police car was caught by a police officer who chased him on his own bike, that he had abandoned just moments earlier.

Police in Birmingham tweeted about the incident, in which the suspect was allegedly "smashing a store front up".

They said: "Imagine being a crook, half way through a crime, and seeing a police car.

"You drop your bike and run away, only to see a cop chasing you down on your own pushbike."

The man was caught, and at the time of the tweet was held in custody.
