    See pickpocket hypnotize store owner to rob him

    A pickpocket in Highgate, London, UK has been caught on surveillance appearing to hypnotize a store owner in less than 60 seconds, in order to rob him.

    The suspect talks to the owner and lightly touches his arm a couple of times, then the owner freezes momentarily as the suspect leisurely rifles his pockets. As he leaves, the store owner quickly comes to his senses and gjves chase, shouting, "Oy, oy, wait a minute!'

    He didn't catch him and Metropolitan police would really like to speak to the man, they say.

    This really is one of the oddest surveillance footage clips I've ever seen and I can't decide if it's an elaborate hoax or not. The video is at the link. Has to be seen to really appreciate this story.

    Couldn't resist the combination of London, pickpockets, and shouts of 'Oy!' Just had to post this.

    ETA: Odd. I can't seem to embed videos anymore with this new tablet. Sorry, you'll have to click on the link.
