A man in Chile picked the wrong bus, and the wrong bus driver, to try and snatch a woman’s purse.
The bus made a stop in Concepcion to pick up several passengers.
That’s when a man at the back of the line tried, twice, to grab the purse of a woman seated in the front row.
She had a good grip on the bag, foiling the bandit, who then tried to laugh it off as a prank.
But the driver wasn’t amused and shut the bus door on the man’s hand.
The driver then produced a baseball bat and began clubbing the suspect, while continuing to drive the bus.
After eight or nine whacks, the suspect was reduced to tears.
He was then let out of the bus, into the custody of waiting police.
