One commuter in Paris had a very interesting day at the metro station. This individual fell asleep waiting for the train, prompting another man to take advantage of the situation and pickpocket the sleeper. Shortly after waking up, this man walked in a daze so precariously that he fell onto the train tracks. The train stopped before hitting him, but who was it that helped him out of the pit? None other than the very person that had robbed him. No word as to whether or not the robber also gave the other man his stuff back.
Another robber - this time in Russia - attempted a very strange robbery. Threatening a pawn shop employee with a grenade, this criminal was only stopped because the employee was smart enough to trigger the silent alarm without her explosive captor noticing.
