THIS is the amazing moment a nursing student locked a 'would-be thief' inside her £57,000 Mercedes – after reportedly spotting him trying to steal the car.

Rebecca Cheuk couldn't believe her eyes when she looked outside her window last night and spotted a man inside her Mercedes A45.


The 21-year-old, who lives in Fife, Scotland, immediately raced for her keys – and managed to lock him inside until police arrived.

Every time the man tried to get out of the car, she simply pressed the 'lock' button again, effectively keeping him trapped.

She rumbled the alleged criminal after looking out of the window when her dog began barking.

Video appears to show a middle-aged man sitting inside the car with the interior light on.

He can be seen reaching into the glove compartment and touching the ignition button. The car's alarm then rings out before the light inside the car suddenly turns off.

Perhaps realising he's been busted, the man – who was wearing a black Adidas tracksuit top – sat still as police arrived at the scene and put him in handcuffs.

Rebecca shared the videos to Facebook.

She said: “A guy just tried to steal my Mercedes A45, keep an eye out.

“At 9pm tonight I heard a strange male voice outside my house and a car door shutting. 

“Next thing you know my dogs went mental, barking constantly.

"I looked out and down my drive to find a random guy in my car trying to start it and steal it.

“I went to phone 999 straight away for the police and kept on locking him in my car whenever he tried to get out, about 100 times.

“Luckily the police came fast and arrested him.

"I was so shaken. I’m just 21 and living by myself.

“This was in the Buckhaven area. Please be careful."

The post has now collected hundreds of likes and shares, with dozens of comments from users who were shocked by the brazen act. 

'IT'S SCARY'

One said: “That’s so bad. I’m glad you're okay and that he's been caught.”

Another wrote: “I am so sorry this happened to you. I hope you're okay, how scary.” 

And a third said: “What a fright you must have got.

"That’s scary, I’m glad you are okay though and that they have been caught.”
