WATCH: Man tries to rob store with hilarious kung fu skills
A MAN showing off his kung-fu moves and boxing poses has been caught on camera trying to rob a Hunting and Fishing store in Westgate, Auckland.
CCTV footage posted on January 19 shows the man entering the store and looking through numerous items before launching into a barrage of punches in thin air.
The man, wearing a white T-shirt and shorts, is then seen crouching down behind a rack of store items before allegedly stuffing his pants and T-shirt with goods and swiftly leaving the store.
Hunting and Fishing Westgate posted the footage on Facebook, warning locals and shoppers to be "aware of this master criminal working in the Westgate area".
"We recommend you do not approach this individual as he is clearly a kung fu master and should be considered extremely dangerous," the store said with more than a hint of sarcasm.
The store, which posted the video to Facebook, has dubbed over the CCTV video with footage and music from Rocky Balboa and the Pink Panther.
The store said that police had intercepted the man as he tried to flee the store. However police told the Herald last night they did not have a record of the incident.
