He tried to flee desperately to avoid arrest, but his attempt ended in the worst way: a man of African descent drowned in the Brenta river.
It all began at 4 pm on Friday 4 June, when the man went to the Eurospar in via Altichiero with the intention of removing food and hiding it in his backpack. The security guard, however, discovers him and asks him to open the bag to check the contents: the thief, in response, pushes him and earns the exit starting to run away. Pursued by the vigilante and the police and panicked, the man then decides to jump into the nearby river Brenta and try to cross it to sow the police, but when he reached the middle of the road the strong currents carried him away. The firefighters, who arrived on the spot complete with helicopter and divers, proceeded to search for the man until about 20.30, when he was found on the seabed about thirty meters from the point where he had dived.
