A policeman in Braunschweig, Germany, grabbed a 70 year old thief as he fled from a clothes shop after stealing a shirt we have learned.

The shoplifter tried to evade capture by biting the arresting officer before realising he had left his dentures at home; so instead of sinking his teeth into the officer’s arm, he was only able to leave a wet mark from his gums.

Police spokesman Gunther Brauner reported, ‘He tried to bite the officer several times, but had forgotten to put his false teeth in and so was unable to cause him any harm.’
