Car thief stole police motorcycle

A suspected car thief was cornered by Malaysian police but managed to escape -- but riding off on one of their motorcycles, a report said Friday.

Police pulled over the man in the northern state of Penang on Wednesday as he drove a BMW that was suspected to have been stolen, the New Straits Times reported.

Police asked the man to step out of the car, but while they were inspecting the vehicle, he jumped on one of the police motorcycles.
